We’ve been making real efforts … Casting the Net and the Mission Action Planning in congregations are signs of our efforts to become more missional. Or perhaps we might describe it as moving from a church defined by membership to one defined by discipleship. And if we move in that direction we may also become a church with a sense of our vocation …
So it’s encouraging to see people giving expression to a call to ministry,
Just before Christmas, we celebrated the licensing of Kate Sainsbury as a Lay Reader in the Strathearn Group of congregations – that’s Crieff, Comrie and Lochearnhead. It was a congregational event. That’s a sign of Kate’s vocation being recognised within those congregations, And it was a diocesan event because so many people are involved in the training process.
So where next?
