When Jesus shared his Mission with his friends, he started small with the eleven who were gathered around him and wanted to be like him. "Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age'" (Matthew 28:17-20). Reach out. Invite in. Share God's Word. Be in community. Do life together. That's God's plan for his people where two or three are gathered in his name. Amen. Let it be!
