Bishop Snorton's Meditation
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
The 2014 General Conference approved the new quadrennial theme for our church “The Investment Factor: A Changed People, Changing the World”. It is a rich theme, with several layers of interpretation. But essentially, it reminds me of the Romans passage, where we are urged as believers to be transformed.
The kind of transformation called for is like a “mental makeover” that will lead to “spiritual growth”. In other words, the kind of change that will grow us into being the disciples that God desires us to be is not cosmetic, it is not external, it is not putting new wine in old wineskins. This kind of change and transformation is radical, life-altering, mind-expanding, out of the box, beyond our comfort zone! It is time for us to change, not just to LOOK better, but to BE better. This is no small task nor is it an easy journey. But it is mandated by God if we are to please him.
Join us this quadrennium, as the Fifth Episcopal District seeks to be a “changed people” determined and committed to “changing the world”. Click here to read Bishop Snorton’s proposed action steps!
