Stewardship, Giving, and the Third Rail (Giving, Part 1)

By

From LeaderWorks: helping leaders do their work.

A third rail is the high voltage power line that runs along a subway train. It is the one you are warned NOT to touch. It powers the train. But don’t touch it. It makes everything go, but if you touch it, it might kill you. Zap! Shock!

For some congregations, the topics of stewardship and giving are the third rail of church work.

It makes them nervous. They might be shocked!
