Kyria.com Highlights Stewardship This Holiday Season

Contact: Ginger Kolbaba, Christianity Today International, 630-260-6200

CAROL STREAM, Ill., Dec. 6, 2010 /Christian Newswire/ -- The December issue of the Kyria digizine, available today, encourages women to be good stewards of the many gifts they’ve been given throughout this holiday season— and every day.

Editor Ginger Kolbaba says, “This month’s issue of the Kyria digizine is on the spiritual discipline of stewardship—the practice of living out the awareness that everything belongs to God and is only entrusted to us for a short time. We want this issue to help women be aware of what they do in all aspects of their lives–from time to relationships to resources to money.”

Featured is an interview with R. Paul Stevens, author of Doing God’s Business (Eerdman’s Publishing), who says we need to think of stewardship in terms of all of life— everything we own, have, and do. “We are like somebody who manages a household. We aren’t owners of the things we have, but we’ve been entrusted with the care of everything for the sake of God’s purposes in the world.”

A portion of the Kyria digizine is free access and open to everyone. The December issue features the following articles:
