2011 World Mission Sunday

There are over 60 missionaries in 25 countries around the world serving as teachers, medical professionals, clergy, and in other important capacities. They are recent college graduates and established professionals who have answered God’s call to go and be in the midst of their brothers and sisters in another part of God’s world.

World Mission Sunday 2011 gives Episcopalians the opportunity to learn more about our missionaries and how their work can be supported through prayer, communication, and money.

O God, who before the passion of your only-begotten Son revealed his glory upon the holy mountain: Grant to us that we, beholding by faith the light of his countenance, may be strengthened to bear our cross, and be changed into his likeness from glory to glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Sermons That Work for World Mission Sunday
The Rev. Christopher Morck, Missionary in Ecuador
Today’s readings all speak of mountains – high mountains, holy mountains, as the writers describe them – much like the high and holy mountains that surround the Episcopal congregations in the Ecuadorian Andes in South America.

El Rvdo. Christopher Morck, Misionero en Ecuador
Todas las lecturas de hoy hablan de montañas, montañas elevadas, montañas sagradas, como los escritores las describen, al igual que las montañas elevadas y sagradas que rodean a las congregaciones episcopales en los Andes ecuatorianos de América del Sur.

The Rev. Dr. Sandra McCann, MD, Missionary in Tanzania
God sent Jesus as mission incarnate, and Jesus sends each of us as the same. Each week we gather to worship, and just before we scatter into the world, our liturgy reminds us of our great "co-mission": "Even as my Father has sent me, so I send you. Go in peace to love and serve the Lord."
