2011 Assembly Sunday Worship Resources:
From July 4-8, 2011, individuals from Mennonite Church
Canada congregations will gather to worship and work
together. The children’s and junior youth assembly, the youth
assembly and the delegate assembly will all focus on the
theme for this year, “It’s Epic: remembering God’s future,”
inspired by texts from the last two chapters of Revelation.
In the beginning, God was at home with mortals, provided for their need and walked with them in the garden. And then Jesus came as God with us so that we could not only remember this beginning but also count on it as our future. In our present, we are blessed by the Holy Spirit as God in and among us. As we look ahead to our future, we continue discerning what it means to be God’s faithful, witnessing church in a world full of challenge and change. To help us we have the trustworthy and true promise in Revelation 21 and 22 that God will be worshipped on a throne in the middle of the city of heaven on earth. God will again make his home among mortals. God was and is among us, with us and in us. May these texts help us live more fully into God’s vision for being the church in the world so that allegiance to Jesus Christ and his church is experienced as living in a city where the creativity, culture and diversity of all are able to flourish in the gracious light of God.
