THEOLOGY OF MONEY
A new resource "Theology of Money" has been introduced by Faith, Worship and Ethics group from the Anglican Church of Canada. This is a wonderful tool not only for use in the parish but also for interacting and discussing how our world works with the greater community.

THE EPISCOPAL NETWORK FOR STEWARDSHIP (TENS)
The Territory of the People holds membership in TENS (The Episcopal Network for Stewardship).
TENS has an incredible array of resource materials for parishes to use in developing stewardship programs in your ministry. Click here to visit the TENS website.
To access the members section of the resource file, please have a warden from your ministry contact David Durksen and he will share with you the login information.
Stewardship is about relationships and our relationship with TENS is one example of how we are able to draw our circle wider and access a wealth of information to support our work in ministry.
At a Stewardship Education for Development session in September 2016 Primate Fred Hiltz introduced the Barnabas Plan. A wonderful resource for those who may appear to be invisible in ministry yet have profound effect on the good works that happen.
Summaries of the BARNABAS PLAN are linked below.
