Workers



Beloved Community of Christ, do not just speak and sing of Zion. Live, love and share as Zion: those who strive to be visibly one in Christ, among whom there are no poor or oppressed.
(Words of Counsel Presented at the 2013 World Conference)

Yesterday I met with Tim Stanlick, our Canada East Mission President.  We talked about a variety of situations in various cities, towns and areas where Community of Christ has congregations or opportunities: Blenheim, London, Toronto, Barrie, the Maritime provinces, the list goes on and on.  It occurs to me that the common denominator in every case is the need for workers.  As I reflect on that conversation this morning, a variety of scriptures come to mind, among which are the following. 

The call is for WORKERS in the cause of Zion; therefore, neither tarry, nor doubt that I am.  (Doctrine and Covenants 155:8)

The field is white already to harvest, wherefore, thrust in your sickle, and reap with all your might, mind, and strength.
(This call for workers actually occurs eight times in the Doctrine and Covenants: sections 4:1c, 6:2a, 10:2a, 11:2a, 12:2a, 32:1d, 32:2c, 122:71)

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?
(Isaiah 6:8a)

With that in mind, and the needs of the church pressing firmly upon us, I would like to place the following ad.
