Reflections on a Mission Statment

The Mission of The United Methodist Church (yes, the “The” is supposed to be capitalized) is “to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”

Thinking about this, and how it relates to our congregation (and to yours, for that matter), I thought of this the other day:

To make DISCIPLES
we must BE disciples
to be disciples
we must FOLLOW Jesus
NO ONE of us gets to decide
what it means to follow Jesus:
we are all in this together.
