When people ask me how we are travelling, I ask them what they have been doing.
They have told me many inspiring stories about living out the church's Call and Vision 2020.
In the Synod office, we are developing sustainable mission-oriented organisation for the church in Queensland.
We are seeking ways to eliminate duplication and increase collaboration across the Synod and with Presbyteries, congregations and Uniting Church agencies like UnitingCare Queensland and Wesley Mission Brisbane.
Other exciting projects are the Christmas postcard campaign and the 2013 Synod calendar art competition, which gives young people a way to use their creativity to connect with the Together on the way, enriching community journey.
I encourage you to share your stories with other communities, congregations, Presbyteries, and with Journey.
How are you engaged in the Monday Midday Prayer initiative launched by the Moderator at the last Synod meeting?
How are you forming active and accountable disciples in your own context? In your community, what or whom have you been listening to?
What is the story and how (and to whom) is it being communicated?
