  6. 6. The Church “the church, as communal life with Jesus, is one of God’s gifts to the world, and that it is in the nature of this gift to be passed on” (Moynagh 2016)
  7. 7. Participation This mission also is a gift – the joy and privilege of participating in the divine extravagance that creates the kingdom. The church, too, is a gift – not only to believers, but to the world because it announces the kingdom, contributes to it and provides a foretaste of it. (Moynagh 2016)

  12. 12. Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.
  13. 13. Go in peace; may you carry God’s Wisdom, speak forth God’s Word, and embody God’s Presence wherever you are. In the name of Christ. Amen.
