Shaped by God

The Diocesan Vision 'Shaped by God' has been running for 10 years and was revisited and renewed by Diocesan Synod at the end of last year.
At our AGM this year a presentation was given to the whole parish and special copies of 'In Shape' magazine were made available.
This message was shared again at St Paul's a few weeks ago when I was preaching on the parable of the mustard seed from Mark 4.30-31.
The 3 areas of growth are represented by the image from this parable.
Growth in depth of discipleship shown by the roots of the tree.
Growth in the number of disciples shown by the leaves on the tree.
Growth in loving service of the world shown by the birds of the air making their nest in tree.
