Every family in our shared life group put together family mission statements as homework this past week to share with each other.
This is something that Brad and I did a few years ago but we decided to start fresh. I thought it would be fun to share ours and to encourage other families and individuals to do the same. Making a mission statement is a fantastic way to consider the important values in our lives and refocus our time on what matters.
We started by making a list of what is important to us and Brad with his writing power but it together in a beautiful, almost poetic way.
We will seek and serve God and be witnesses of his grace and selflessly honor our community with our time, resources, and talents.
We will reduce our burden upon society and the Earth by sustaining ourselves, our neighbors and our environment.
We will live in the intentional present by embracing poverty, play, experience, and spontaneous generosity, and by resisting consumerism, security and competition, and we will not be entrapped by debt.
We will use our talents in service to the Lord as an act of worship.
If you have a mission statement please consider sharing!
