LMPN Session 9 Homework My Stewardship Pie Page 1 My Stewardship Pie: At-Home Activity for You/Your TeamThis activity asks you to consider how to allocate your stewardship “pie” among these activities: • Prayers • Presence • Gifts • Service • WitnessActivity Instructions: • Begin by carefully reading these words a few times: “faithfully participate in its ministries by their prayers, their presence, their gifts, their service, and their witness.” • Write any notes, observations, or questions that come to your mind. Use the circle below to show how you slice your stewardship pie. Current picture: • Draw lines across the circle to indicate how much of the pie you normally give to each of the five membership activities: prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. (Note: Your “slices” may not be equal sizes. You may spend more of your stewardship on prayer than on service. Be honest in your assessment.) • Label each pie “slice” with an activity – prayers, presence, gifts, service, witness. • Prayerfully consider whether this picture reflects your desired stewardship pie. • Use the second circle (next page) to slice your preferred stewardship pie.
