On Tuesday morning, after our synodical guests had returned home, the missionaries of St John gathered for a quiet clericus. We reflected on the synod, spoke of ministry, set our eyes on the future and how to fulfill our mission. We heard reports from the Office of Foreign Missions, our work in Tanzania, our home missions and our evangelical call to share Jesus and teach the faith, giving particular attention to our catechism teaching material. Some of us have shared ministry together for decades and we count these hours spent together are precious.
