Pastor Jan's Corner- September

“OUR” VISION STATEMENT

The Wyomissing Church of the Brethren’s congregational vision statement reads: “The Wyomissing Church of the Brethren will be a loving, accepting community of Christian believers. Together we will encourage and support each other both to grow spiritually through Jesus’ teachings and to actively, personally serve the community, both locally and beyond, so that God’s love is shared through us.”

What a great statement of faith

 

and hope! What an energetic

 

mission to show God’s love

 

throughout the world! What a

 

VISION! Communities are  intended to be

 

fluid – that is, “subject to change or

 

movement” (Webster). I see our work and

 

our ministry together within the church

 

community to be moving, unfixed, and actively

 

engaged, as we continue living out our stated

 

vision in following Jesus. May we remember

 

that our role as “believers” is never static,

 

fixed, or immovable as we live out such an

 

important mission. Rather, we are invited

 

to expand and recast the vision, interpreting

 

it for such a time as this. I pray God’s

 

blessing on an ever-changing,

 

ever-responsive approach in our work together.
