“Remember who you are.” Those words echo through my soul during the season of Lent. This year the challenge to remember who I am is coupled with the vision of the Desert Southwest Conference. You know the vision statement: We are called to be a courageous church: loving like Jesus, acting for justice, united in hope.
Congregations often turn inward as we journey through the lifecycle of the congregation. We become satisfied with maintaining the comfort of those who are already here and lose sight of the mission that we are called to be stewards of, the mission to go and make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. The season of Lent leading up to Easter is a season of preparation, readying ourselves for the celebration of Resurrection. It is also a time to focus on growing as disciples and extending ourselves outward into our neighborhoods and engaging the community around us in a way that builds meaningful relationships.
Last week we completed the third of our District Administrative Committee Training Webinars. You do not need to attend a workshop to use the training videos. They are available any time you wish to view them or share them.
