I love the Anglican Church; why don’t others know about us?
Have you ever said, “How do I describe my church to people who are interested?” Or how about, “I love the Anglican Church; why don’t others know about us?” The Everyday Evangelism workshop on March 2nd will engage these very questions and more. We’ll start with a discussion of what we think evangelism is, and we hope that there will be a lively exchange of ideas.
(The Rev. Andrea McMillin)We’ll talk about the richness of the Anglican tradition. With all its diversity, there are some common themes in Anglican spirituality and temperament, so we’ll delve into characteristics such as “biblical”, “communal”, “sacramental,” and “comprehensive”, “open-minded”, “intuitive”, and “aesthetic.” Do any of these words describe your parish? Come take part in the whole exercise, which will help you understand how your parish expresses its Anglican personality. Once you have a sense of your Anglican culture, we will work on finding words to express the particular identity of your congregation. No one parish can be all things to all people, so parish teams will develop an “elevator speech” that encapsulates the distinctive way that your faith community lives out its core purpose of serving God’s mission in the world.
