Dear Sisters and Brothers in the Episcopal Church in Northern Indiana!
Grace and peace be with you in Jesus, the Light for all people!
I want to personally invite every elected lay leader, every evangelist and every clergy person, in fact, every person who is committed to our 36 Faith Communities thriving! This Vestry Resource Day is for YOU!
There is a proven process developed over the last few years called: INVITE, WELCOME, CONNECT. I believe it is an essential tool for all of us in our commitment to the Five Marks of Mission, especially Mark 1 - proclaim the Good News and Mark 2 - teach, baptize and nurture new believers!
The Rev. Myles Brandon, who serves at St. Julian of Norwich Episcopal Church in Austin, Texas is returning to our diocese to help facilitate our learning more about this important tool for evangelism. You can visit their website by clicking here https://stjuliansaustin.org/ . For more information regarding INVITE, WELCOME, CONNECT you can click http://www.invitewelcomeconnect.com/.
I'll see you there on Saturday, 3 March at St. Anne's in Warsaw!
