"Do you think I have come to give you peace on Earth?  No, I tell you, but rather division." Luke 12:51    Living a stewardship lifestyle means stepping out of our comfort zone when needed.  Many of us like to play it safe, not cause waves, stay in the middle of the road.  In today's world we are called to be informed and take a stance for life, marriage and religious liberty.
