We are fortunate to have the "Vision: Healing and Hope" statement as an inspiring and helpful guide for MC Canada at this time. Our purpose and identity statement nicely focuses on calling, equipping and sending. The three priorities are "forming" a people of God; "becoming" a global church, and "growing" leaders for the church.I am very pleased to be a part of Mennonite Church Canada. My prayer is that, as our church rightly discerns gospel-related issues, we will be holy, hospitable, faithful and gentle. It is my hope that, as the General Board contributes its part to the discernment of God's intent, we can say, "it seemed good to the Spirit and to us"
