How do we prepare for Mission?
A few weeks before we left St. Anne’s Church, the Rev. Canon Charles Robertson, Canon to the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church for Ministry beyond the Episcopal Church came to St. Anne’s to preach, lead the Sunday forum, and talk about mission in the Episcopal Church. During the liturgy, Canon Robertson invited everyone to lay hands on us and pray for us, an ancient form of prayer, to commission us for service as appointed missionaries in the Episcopal Church.
