The theme of the Provincial Assembly is “Renewing our Call to the Great Commission.” All of the amendments and the new BCP should help us in following the Great Commission, and there will also be a number of speakers at the Assembly speaking to how we as Christians can help in spreading the kingdom. More information about the Assembly can be found at http://disciple2019.com/ .
Placing emphasis on the Great Commission is something we as Christians in the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin, need to ponder, embrace and take forward into the world. The Great Commission isn’t something for other people or something that we can just trust the institutions of the church to work out, all of us as Christians should be actively involved in serving our neighbors and sharing the Gospel.
Please be in prayer for me during the College of Bishops, Provincial Council and Provincial Assembly. Please pray for all the delegates of San Joaquin representing the Diocese: Dr. Bill Atwood, Mr. Jim Doe, Mr. Andy Ehrhart, Mrs. Dolores Vargas, Mrs. Betty Miller, Mrs. Anne Marcalo, Mr. Dwayne McDowell, Dcn. Melinda Barrow, Fr. Jack Estes, Fr. Jonathan Kanary and Fr. David Miller.
Bishop Eric Menees
