Bill Marianes has dedicated a significant portion of the last 35 years, and every available weekend for the last 5 years, to traveling over 150,000 miles throughout the United States to work with individual church communities, clergy, and faithful to better understand and implement true stewardship in their Parishes and lives. He delivers extensive stewardship content for Parishes and individuals through his website and blog at www.stewardshipcalling.com and his Igniting The Flame Of True Christian Stewardship program. Bill is an Archon of the Ecumenical Patriarch and has served the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and Atlanta Metropolis Councils for many years. By day, he is a partner in the Atlanta office of a 900+ lawyer international law firm and practices in the areas of corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, business succession planning, and church matters. By calling, he is a stewardship evangelist and can be reached at either Bill@stewardshipcalling.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This podcast challenges us to consider our legacy by exploring how our eulogy provides the human grade as to whether we lived our stewardship calling and earned the title “righteous man” or “righteous woman.” We explore my “5-F” stewardship calling model that assesses our lives in relation to our Faith, Family, Friends, Filotemo, and For whom we lived and served. By considering what our eulogies will say about our lives against this 5-F matrix, we can assess how aligned our lives are with our stewardship callings. A specific example of a close personal friend serves as a guide for a life well lived and a stewardship calling fulfilled.
