mission possible

It's easy to think of church as an institution, but it's also a movement: a body of people pursuing the radical, world-changing, compassionate

mission of God. And next Saturday, right here at the Cathedral, you'll see the movement in full bloom.

The Crossing is helping to throw a Spring Learning Event/Episcopal Village Mission Event on Saturday, March 5, from 9am (ouch!) to 4:30pm (ah, that's more like it). Presenters are coming from around the corner and all over the country, with a keynote speaker -- our friend Ian Mobsby, author and priest to our sister church in London, the Moot community -- coming from the UK. The whole point is to explore the many, many, many ways communities around us are sharing the gospel and forming sustainable Christian communities in a changing world.
