Second Sunday of Advent (Year A) • Our vision statement says we are missionary disciples — what does that mean? There are four parts to missionary discipleship:
- Discover Jesus
- Follow Jesus
- Worship Jesus
- Share Jesus with Others
Being a disciple means allowing ourselves to be transformed by the daily encounter with Jesus. Being a missionary is about helping others realize that Jesus is already present and active in their life. We mistakenly think the Kingdom is a long way off so the work can wait. But the Kingdom is closer than you think; it may be as close as your next bite of food.

We are missionary disciples striving to lead all people to the Kingdom of God. ~ Parish Vision
Point to Ponder: Do you realize how much Jesus loves you?
Point to Discuss: Who helped you discover the Kingdom of God? Call or write to thank them, if they are still alive, or light a candle if they are deceased. Or name them in a comment to this post.
