Mending!

May Mission Month

Joining with God in mending a beautiful, broken world.

No matter where we are, we can join God in mending a beautiful, broken world. We don’t bring healing in our strength—we are co-menders with God in Jesus Christ, our Healer and Saviour.

Being a co-mender means joining God in renewing creation and communities, developing meaningful and authentic relationships, restoring people and the planet through God’s healing and love, and making ourselves available to be used by God. God is mending a beautiful, broken world in Jesus Christ our Lord. Jesus calls us to be co-menders with God, joining with God wherever He brings healing, shalom, reconciliation and renewal.

Being a co-mender means sharing God’s love and Gospel in compassionate, authentic, and relevant ways. It means partnering together with each other and God – sending and being sent, giving and receiving, serving together as partners in God’s mission.
