HAPPY NEW YEAR

MISSION CAPSULES: Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing … support the Rev. Blair and Vivian Bertrand as they serve a three year term with the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian in Malawi. Blair supports leadership development through the Blantyre Synod’s youth department, Zomba Theological College and the Theological Education by Extension program. Vivian’s desire is to support the Synod’s work combating poverty. Blair feels called to this mission and shares that “to be sent is to participate in the mission of God.” Vivian adds, “as Christians, we are called into relationship. My understanding of mission centers around the idea that we are all impoverished in our own way, and as humans living in the world, through the grace of God, we have something to offer our brothers and sisters.”

NOTE: Theology on Tap will continue soon – the book to read is “Have a Little Faith” by Mitch Albom
