Sharing Stories

In churches, schools and parishes, people are living prayerfully, pastorally and prophetically in their daily lives. Here are some ideas and resources that may help to encourage and deepen our journey with the vision, as we seek to live transformed by Christ.

 

We will be prayerful in proclaiming the Good News of the Kingdom, rooting ourselves in Scripture and the sacraments. We will wait upon God in stillness, contemplation and intercession. Our corporate prayer, an ongoing conversation with God, will embrace traditional, fresh expressions, online and evolving models of being Church.
