Passion Compassion MISSION
Whilst on sabbatical in New Zealand I was very struck by Guy Kawasaki’s comment (former board member of Apple) that you should be able to sum up your organisation in 3 words. I immediately knew what those 3 words were for us at The Beacon: Passion Compassion Mission. Whilst we have been explicit about Passion and Compassion we have not been so explicit about our Mission.
If you would like to know more about what this means you can download this message from The Beacon web site (Sunday 4th Jan 09). You can also hear Peter Wharrad’s outstanding message from Isaiah 58 (Sun 11th Jan 09) which was a seminal word for us as a church and paves the way forward for us together through 2009 and into 2010.
In response to Peter’s word and how we feel God is leading us we will endeavour to be come more involved in Community Mission – various social action projects. The co-ordination of these projects will, I hope, become part of the brief for the new Assistant Pastor.
