Jesus was clear about his ministry: he came to serve, not to be served. In baptism all of us received the call to be FOR others, a call that was strengthened in Confirmation and continually renewed and nourished by the Eucharist. Our sacramental life keeps us on track.
As leaders we need a vision, a vision that implements the one stated in the Vatican II document Lumen Gentium: “By her relationship with Christ, the Church is a kind of sacrament or sign of intimate union with God, and of the unity of all humankind. She is also the instrument of such union and unity” (#1).
Here at Resurrection:
Our vision statement reads:
“We are a fully engaged parish whose hearts are opening,
minds are changing and lives are transforming.”
We go on to articulate our mission statement:
“Becoming disciples of Jesus and stewards of God’s gifts.”
In all of our planning and decision-making, we keep in mind this vision of oneness with God and harmony within our community and beyond. We do this by being fully engaged and living out our core values:
prayer, service, sharing, hospitality, learning and gratitude.
As leaders we ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit who enlightens, enkindles, and empowers us to hear and live God’s word.
All of this is grounded in prayer, both personal and liturgical. We strive to put on the mind and heart of Jesus and to become disciples of his love and mercy.
May we all one day hear those glorious words: “Well done, good and faithful servant [leader].”
Peace and joy in the Risen Lord,
