“The Trinitarian grounding of mission should make clear that God and not the church is the primary subject and source of mission. Advocacy is what the church is about, being God’s advocate in the world. The church must therefore begin its mission with doxology, otherwise everything peters out into social activism and aimless programs” Carl Braaten

Let us not forget that our purpose as Christians and as a church is to make sure that those around us know Jesus. So, whether we are feeding the poor, mowing our neighbors lawn, loving the unlovable… if we do not do it in a way which they can know Jesus, we did it all for not. We all have the call equally, for we were made equally in the image of God. Let us live lives dedicated to the Gospel in all we do.
