STORIES OF HOPE, highlighting the faith and spirit of mission developers throughout the Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement! I still remember incidents from when my family had to leave a Communist controlled part of the highlands of Laos to get to a safe zone. We traveled for 21 days with no food but whatever plants we could find to eat. We would starve if we stopped, so my father pushed us, often carrying me. Three times animals alerted us by their behavior, we paid attention and avoided death. We were Christians and we prayed and I know that those animals were messengers of God. I look back on that journey and see that God was with us. -Toua Vang, Episcopal priest
The first installment in our STORIES OF HOPE series, highlighting the faith and spirit of mission developers throughout the Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement! Somewhat recently my wife and I lost a pregnancy. It was really really tough time our lives. What gave me hope was the outpouring of loving support from people who said I had touched them in some way. I had no idea that I had any kind of impact on them, from people in a dance class I attend to someone who sells me the paper in the morning. Their support and love showed me there was more love than I knew and no matter how family turned out for us, we would be good. -Edwin Johnson, Episcopal priest #episcopalchurch #jesusmovement #evangelism #hope #prisonersofhope #missiondeveloper #genesisTEC @theepiscopalchurch Photo Credit: @franklogue
Today we begin our inaugural three-day Genesis Mission Developer Intensive Training in Scottsdale, Arizona. Over 80 leaders of new communities throughout the Jesus Movement are gathered to learn, dream, and bear witness to new life in our world! The power blew out at the Franciscan Renewal Center last night and prompted us to tabernacle at the Marriott for now - but the power, presence, and Spirit of the Lord is here! Pray for our mission developers and stay tuned for updates! #TECGenesis #jesusmovement #episcopal
