In the Book of Alternative Services for the season of Lent, we tend to use Litany 14 as a guide for our prayers.

In that Litany, there is a petition that beings “For the mission of the Church, that in faithful witness it may preach the gospel to the ends of the earth, we pray to you, Lord.” 

In what ways do we, individually, our churches corporately, and the larger global church, give faithful witness and preach the gospel?

Describing marks of healthy Christian congregations is an attempt to give the broad outlines of what a community of Christians living out their faith in the triune God, revealed in Jesus Christ and sustained and empowered by the Holy Spirit, looks like. Here is one of these characteristics. 

Loving Service (Greek Diakonia) – to participate in God’s mission of love to the world. Jesus said, “I came not to be served, but to serve.” He who came in the flesh calls us as His body to continue that service. This is given expression when we both personally and as a Body look toward the needs of the world around us and seek to address those needs in the power of God’s Spirit.

How does this look?

 

When Loving Service is offered, we serve the least in society. Parishioners live out the love of God by actively seeking out the needs of people in their local community. We express the love of God we have come to know and use gifts to serve the needs of others (by helping the needy, lifting up the lowly and working to free those bound by forces of human greed, oppression, and suffering). People regularly pray for one another and when specific needs are uncovered, we are motivated to use our God-given gifts to help.

How is this missional?

We meet needs through ministries within the church, participation in pre-existing community programs or through the creation of new initiatives. It is clear how the love of God has transformed us, gifted us and motivated us to serve. Through this, the community comes to know Christ the servant of all.

Describing marks of healthy Christian congregations is an attempt to give the broad outlines of what a community of Christians living out their faith in the triune God, revealed in Jesus Christ and sustained and empowered by the Holy Spirit, looks like. Here is one of these characteristics.

Evangelism Proclamation/Evangelism/Invitation (Greek Kerygma) – to participate in the mission of God by telling others through word and action the good news of God in Christ.

It is about being willing to bear witness to the faith that is within us and thereby extend the invitation and opportunity for others to come to know the love of God that is in Jesus.

How does this look?

When evangelism is happening, a community formed in Christ regularly invites others to join. Individual parishioners are given permission and encouraged to invite friends to their parish. They are unafraid to do so and confident that those invited will be welcomed by the community. They regularly share stories of how life in Christ has affected them, what it means to be invited to be a part of the community, and they do so to encourage one another by their own stories of faith. We all look for ways to proclaim the love of Christ to others in word and action. This is best done through relationships which we have, or will establish, and being open and authentic about our faith with others.


How is this missional?

When parishioners regularly share their faith, they are sharing the good news of Jesus in their lives through their words and actions, and participating in God’s mission.

Describing marks of healthy Christian congregations is an attempt to give the broad outlines of what a community of Christians living out their faith in the triune God, revealed in Jesus Christ and sustained and empowered by the Holy Spirit, looks like. Here is one of these characteristics.

Catechesis/Formation Teaching/Formation/Discipleship (Greek Didache) – to have our lives, attitudes, beliefs, and actions shaped by the Apostolic Teaching contained in the Scriptures and in the teaching Tradition of the Church.

It involves the reading and study of Scripture and the honest and humble reception of the Apostolic witness as the trustworthy word which reveals to us God’s own Word in Jesus. It shapes our choices and priorities both as a community of the Church and personally as individual believers. Most often accomplished through Bible studies and other Christian Education offerings.

How does this look?

When formation is vibrant, a majority of parishioners are engaged in communal and personal formation. Catechesis begins with basic instruction on the Christian faith which prepares individuals for the mission of God. We deepen our faith through study of the Scriptures. We enrich our lives through Christian spiritual direction and disciplines. We then live out the mission of God in every area of our lives.

How is this missional?

Parishioners learn who God is and how they relate to God & others, to form and train their heart, mind, soul, and strength for God’s mission in the world.

Our Diocesan Vision Statement: To be a church that is inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit; a church that reflects the virtue and grace of Jesus; a church reaching out to proclaim God's love to a broken world. 

 "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God - what is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:1-2

"To be a church that is inwardly transformed..."  How have you been transformed by the Holy Spirit? 

In what ways do you expect to be transformed in your thinking, your character, your actions? 

How have you used prayer, scripture and study to be transformed by Christ?

Our Diocesan Vision Statement: To be a church that is inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit; a church that reflects the virtue and grace of Jesus; a church reaching out to proclaim God's love to a broken world. 

“He called them, and immediately they left their boat and their father and followed Him.” (Matthew 4:22)

Just as Jesus called the first apostles, He calls each of us to follow Him, too. Not everyone is called to leave their business or family behind, but we are expected to put God first in everything. Everything from our time in daily prayer, our talent in participating in one of our parish ministries, and our treasure to support the financial needs of missions that we wish to support. 

At this time of year when Annual Parish Meetings seek people to step out in faith to serve in the various ministries the parish requires, may we all hear Jesus calling us to use our time, talents and treasures to serve Him.
