For six weeks starting today... we’ll be saying in effect: Ok, God has done extraordinary things for us in Christ, and he’s poured out the Holy Spirit in our midst to send us out on mission as Christ’s body in the world. So what does that look like? What is the mission of the Church, here and now in the ordinary everyday time of our lives? What’s my mission as a disciple, and what’s our mission as a community?
To get inside these questions, Mother Emily and I thought: what better way to do this than to preach all the way through one of St. Paul’s letters, written to the church in Ephesus when it was brand new by a man who knew the resurrected Jesus and was taught by none other than the twelve disciples. I encourage you to read along each week at home, one chapter at a time.
