”What better way for our Three Tikanga Church to celebrate than to share our mission stories with each other! This is what Anglican Missions is challenging our Parishes and Rohe to do this year – and we hope it will continue in the years to come.
Four great reasons to share our mission stories:
- By sharing our mission stories, we are also sharing the Good News: Missions are, at their heart, about sharing the gospel. By sharing our mission stories, we are also sharing the gospel with one another.
- By sharing our mission stories, we are also spurring one another on to live lives of love and good deeds: We inspire others to serve as we share our own lives of service.
- By sharing our mission stories, we are celebrating both the unity of the church and the diversity of God’s world: There are so many stories to tell, Mission Taonga emanating from the different contexts and mission activity and mission relationships of our Three Tikanga Church.
- By sharing our mission stories, we are celebrating God’s work on earth: "Mission goes out from God. Mission is God's way of loving and saving the world... So mission is never our invention or choice." (Lambeth Conference 1998, Section II p121).
