The Bishop of San Diego’s Convention Address from Earlier this Year

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Dear Ones: Welcome to this great age of mission. We have made no small plans. It is not about the church; it is not about us. It is about sharing in and showing forth the fearless love of God in Christ Jesus. In that first century of missional possibility, Jesus gathered together fishermen, tax collectors, zealots, and harlots and sent them on an adventure of proclamation and mission. In this place and time, God has gathered us to be missionaries in a moment of missional possibility. It is not about us, but it is our turn. We have God’s mission; we have a mission plan to live into God’s mission. I don’t know about you but I’m ready. Let’s be on the way.

Read it all.

And, now that I think about it, it reminds me of various bishops’ motivational addresses regarding “Venture in Mission”, if there are those who recall.  Let’s just say VIM was not the rousing success in capital fund raising for “mission” it was intended to be.
