God’s mission is at work in your life. Will you share your story with the rest of the church?
You are invited to make a two-minute video for the Mission Moments website and talk about how God is working where you are. This is the latest—and most interactive—element in the Anglican Church of Canada’s promotion of the Marks of Mission, five priorities used throughout the worldwide Anglican Communion. They are
- To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
- To teach, baptize,and nurture new believers
- To respond to human need by loving service
- To seek to transform unjust structures of society
- To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth
Making a video is easy. You can record directly on to the website with your web cam, or you can upload a video that you have already recorded.
Stories don’t have to explicitly reference the Marks of Mission. They can be general or specific stories of how God’s mission is at work in your life.
Already the site is hosting videos made by people across the Anglican Church of Canada. An intern from the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund talks about how God has guided her in her life choices. A young priest in Montreal explains what ministry looks like in a shopping mall. A bishop shares what it was like to find God among some especially generous children.
This Mission Moments website is one way Canadian Anglicans can learn about the Marks of Mission. Already the initiative has included two contests: one on Sunday School curriculum and the other a song contest. The winners of the curriculum contest are currently developing their final product and the winning song was chosen in December 2011, with a release planned for later in 2012.
A third contest, focusing on art, will launch closer to the next national meeting, General Synod 2013.
As word gets out about the Marks of Mission, dioceses and parishes are using this framework to describe what God is doing in their area. If your church is using the Marks of Mission for resources, programs, or in any other way, please share this with the Marks of Mission team at General Synod.
