Good stewardship of church resources

You’ve all heard of the housing crisis in the U.S. Millions of people have had their homes foreclosed upon because they couldn’t pay the bills.

Something similar is happening in churches too:

The past few years have seen a rapid acceleration in the number of churches losing their sanctuaries because they can’t pay the mortgage.

Just as homeowners borrowed too much or built too big during boom times, many churches did the same and now are struggling as their congregations shrink and collections fall owing to rising unemployment and a weak economy.

Since 2008, nearly 200 religious facilities have been foreclosed on by banks, up from eight during the previous two years and virtually none in the decade before that, according to real-estate services firm CoStar Group, Inc. Analysts and bankers say hundreds of additional churches face financial struggles so severe they could face foreclosure or bankruptcy in the near future. (Source)

That’s why it’s so important to ensure good stewardship of church resources.

If you observe waste in your church, please take a few moments to notify your pastor so that it can be corrected. Otherwise your congregation might eventually become homeless.

  1. Our good teachers like Walter Szetela and Tom Landers are going, and are not being replaced fast enough.
    Liberal theology is driving many people into agnosticism and thereby out of the faith. People are sick and tired of watching performances on stage, and then the majority of performers doing nothing tangible to fight the Culture War raging for the minds and souls of Canadians. With bad legislation becoming Law and very few after Mass either knowing about it or can’t be bothered to know what do you expect? We have our work laid out before us.

  2. When we got Parliament to overturn bad law and legislation in 2008 the majority of our young volunteers were agnostics former Catholics and Protestants driven out by liberal mindless theology. If nothing is done about this and more vice becomes law what do you think will become of the empty buildings? Please inform your Senators to kill Bill C-389 that is before the Senate right now before it becomes Canadian Law.
