Church collection box full to the brim


From Kathimerini:

The Church of Greece’s finances are in rude health, according to a report handed to Archbishop Ieronymos this week, which indicated that the church made more than 7 million euros profit in 2008.

According to the internal report, which was seen by Kathimerini, almost 20 million euros of revenue flowed into the church’s coffers last year, mostly from the renting out of church property. It also earned some 4.5 million euros from investments.

During 2008, the church spent almost 12.5 million euros. The biggest outlay, just over 4 million euros, was for sponsoring events. Almost 4 million was spent on salaries.

Last year, the robust state of the church’s finances also allowed it to buy 1.6 million shares in the National Bank, taking its stake in the lender up to 7.7 million shares

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Link was broken as of the composing of this message.

The Church of Greece has been good stewards with few exceptions.  Well done good and faithful servants.   Smiley

It's working now.

Not that I am one to shy away from criticism, but the Church of Greece does provide a LOT to the Patriarchate of Alexandria for missions and upkeep (Greek control of the see is somewhere involved here) and throughout Africa, the Albanian Church (which is NOT predicated on Greek control), and much of Eastern Europe. In addition to proping up the EP.

We can afford to take care of our missions here ourselves. Of course, that also indicates that we can manage our affairs ourself too.
