Gathering at God's TableGraham Wise, via The Good Book Stall
Katherine Jefferts-Schori (Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in the USA) has focused on what the Anglican Five Marks of Mission may really mean. These are… To proclaim the good news of the kingdom; To teach, baptize and nurture new believers; To respond to human need with 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… Here is an exploration of what these aims might mean in practical terms for Christian life and witness in the 21st century. She believes that mission has often been defined too narrowly as a way of proselytising and converting non-Christians, and argues that it has a far broader context that is both compassionate and challenging. The book is an exploration of the mission of the church and of the basic premise that mission is central to our lives as Christians. The wide-ranging reflections suggest that it should be worked out in many different forms according to need and context and Gospel principles, rather than along any narrow preconceived lines. This is a thoughtful and thought-proving book to widen mission horizons.
