"Stewardship" often hear. Gray periodically mentions that our time, treasures, and talents are ways that we are giving back to our community. That is good stewardship. Stewardship is also a theological belief that as humans, we are responsible for our world and we should take care of it. A Biblical view of stewardship can be defined as "utilizing and managing all resources God provides for the glory of God and the betterment of His creation." There is a strong link between Christian stewardship and caring for the environment. What does it mean for humans to take care of the world? Environmental stewardship is often described as reducing human impact on the natural world.
Here at JCPC, we have been working hard at being good stewards in many ways. Over the past several months, there has been a lot of work happening on our campus thanks to the generosity of members of our church. If you have been on campus, you may have noticed we now have solar panels on the south roof of the Education Building and Great Hall. While it is a little too soon to have statistical data on exact savings, we do have estimates.
