Mission u 2019!
Mission u brings together women, men, youth and children to explore the implications of our Christian faith in today’s contexts. Participants learn and discuss together study topics related to spiritual growth, a geographic area and a current issue—leaving each Mission u better equipped to set faith into action. Study topics for 2019 include the following:
- Spiritual Growth Mission Study: Practicing Resurrection: The Gospel of Mark and Radical Discipleship
In Mark and Radical Discipleship, author Janet Wolf explores what it means to live a life of radical discipleship today using the Gospel of Mark as the foundation. Wolf explores the timeless issues of poverty, gender, justice, liberation, equality, and others using Mark as a guide. The stories of the women in Mark are a particular focus in this study and how, although often unnamed, they are prominent among Jesus’ followers and in Mark’s recounting of the gospel story.
- Issue Mission Study: What About Our Money? A Faith Response
What About Our Money? A Faith Response explores how we relate to money within the context of our faith. Through this connection between our faith and our money, readers discover how to live closer to God and God’s people, even in our North American culture that is so deeply defined by money. She explores the biblical foundation of abundance (sufficiency), which stands in opposition to the scarcity narrative our culture tells us from the time we are very young.
- Special Publication: Women United for Change: 150 years in Mission. United for Change by Ellen Blue is the first in a two-year study commemorating United Methodist Women’s 150th anniversary in 2019. It will provide a historical survey of United Methodist Women and its predecessor organizations and amplify the voices that shaped the work through an overarching story of United Methodist Women changing the face of mission. This study is about women who established vibrant societies to support mission.
