First and foremost thank you for your positive response to our stewardship campaign. Your comments are very important. Some of you have had a couple of questions, so I thought it best to update everyone at once. Yes, you can definitely pledge online. Send an email with your pledge details to firstname.lastname@example.org. We just need to know the pledge amount, and then let us know if you have a pledge number or not.
The second question is around what happens if you fall behind with your pledge. First off, rest easy, there are no pledge police, no one is going to call you to ask you to make up any pledge arrears. The dictionary defines the word pledge as a solemn promise or undertaking, and while it is our hope that you can honor your pledge, we fully understand that sometimes there are circumstances beyond your control that dictate otherwise. Per my letter last week, I am hopeful that we are all able to increase our pledges, as our mission, or should I say the mission of St. Paul’s is too important for us to ignore, therefore pledge what you can, as we are thankful for these gifts.
Before committing to your pledge, I ask again that you do a little soul searching about what St. Paul’s means to you, and then what keeps you here. I think that once you are able to answer those questions, your commitment to a pledge amount will be a little easier.
Thank you again, please don’t hesitate to ask questions.
