We Are Sent – Clara Mapley (DRS)

The theme for this term “We are Sent” echoes the Great Commission outlined in Matthew 28:16-20.  In these final words to the disciples, Jesus tells them what they are to do when he goes.  Don’t sit still, don’t hide, don’t wait – go and share the good news of Jesus with everyone!  These words are known as the ‘Great Commission.’  But what does Commission mean?  You can break the word commission into two: co and mission. ‘Co’ means ‘with/alongside/together’.  So our mission isn’t a solo one –  we do it with God.  It begins with what God is doing in the world, and we get to join in with all God is doing.  Together.
