At the 234th Convention of the Diocese of New Jersey in March 2018, we engaged in a series of conversations about our common call to mission through the lens of the Five Anglican Marks of Mission
The spring series of Bishop’s Forums will focus on how we are living into the missional and timely work of transforming unjust structures of society, challenging violence of every kind, and pursuing peace and reconciliation.
Below, clergy and lay leaders from throughout the diocese share stories about Jubilee ministries and how they transform our communities, from housing to immigration to violence and more.
Here’s a word cloud of responses to the discussion around this Mark of Mission, produced by PollEverywhere:
Please plan to be part of these conversations which help us, as a diocese, to continue discerning our call, share resources, and shape the strategic direction of our diocese.
In the meantime, the Task Force on Resources and Revenue, and the Task Force on Mission, Budget, and Structure, created at the Special Convention in October 2017, continue their work, and updates from those task forces will be forthcoming later in the year.
