My role at work, family, inner self, dreams, interaction with the environment, place in society – these are all parts of one big ministry that is my life.
What is ministry, really?
Is it a formal group of people grounded in an institution legitimized by a long history, heritage, and tradition with rituals that make it feel like it is part of a larger global community of the faith?
In an incomplete sense, yes that is ministry.
But, ministry is also the collective of people, as-of-yet separated by time, space, identity, and economic means, who might not yet know each other or have met each other in person, who might not yet have a title in the Church-as-we-know-it, but who share a common mission, driven by an eternal hope, who are living to enliven existence itself, who are putting all of their life and soul into building a reality that does not yet exist – who are building it at the speed of faith.
And, my life – yes, even mine – is, in this sense, a ministry.
It is a ministry of the Church universal as well as of the Church-throughout-all-time.
PASTORIA is a ministry moonshot factory.
At the intersection of digital, diversity, and the dreams of the community, we co-generate the ministries and ministers of today and tomorrow.
We are bringing about a world in which every life is a ministry – even mine.
If this speaks to you, share this with a friend and follow along our #FAITHFORWARD Campaign throughout the year 2022.
