Mission First

Last summer we participated in a denominational event known as Mission First.  In response to our comments, and those of thousands of other Disciples, the Mission Council has issued the following :

From Mission Gatherings we heard that God is well at work in many ways. We are overwhelmingly called to be a Church that passionately:

  • Responds with compassion to the vulnerable;
  • Creates communities of inclusion and care;
  • Overcomes ongoing and deeply entrenched injustice resisting racism and other forms of injustice in order to affirm the fullness of life for all God’s children;
  • Works together in common cause with ecumenical and global ministry partners.

We also heard a call to focus our efforts for a time on areas in which the above actions intersect with the lives of children, youth and young adults; thus enhancing our presence in ways that illuminate God’s mission.
