"Dale Huston's 'Monthly Stewardship Reflections' delight readers with tales that feature recalcitrant horses, mice venturing up already occupied pant legs, the care and feeding of wandering hobos, and lessons learned in the surprising encounter between stone and toe. Dale, who for the past five years has been General Synod's western-based stewardship and financial development officer, tells simple stories, about the small moments. Yet they are illuminated by the insight and understanding of the mature man, looking back over a lifetime's journey, recognizing everywhere the guiding hand of God". "After 'an ordinary career in parish work', Dale was mildly surprised to find his vocation had brought him to a focus on stewardship. .... For Dale, that means 'taking the pattern of the servant seriously, trying to live according to that model. I see stewardship and servanthood as Christ-sanctioned: he not only lived it, but he recommended it to his followers. .... This sense of being a servant in the household of God shines through in Dale's writing. The results make thought-provoking and enjoyable reading. Dale's 'Monthly Stewardship Reflections' are sent out with the Spring Ministry Mailer. After the last one, several of you wrote and asked to learn more about the writer".
