Our vision comes from the initiative of God who at the creation brought forth the world and the first people whose role was to honour God and express their vocation as stewards of the earth. Even though humans have strayed from their calling, God continues to initiate and call us to be a people of faith, worshipping and witnessing to God’s care for all. This was true of Abraham whom God called and through whom God blessed the world. This was true of Moses who was bidden to worship and to accept his role of leading the people of God out of slavery to be a light to the nations. And this is true of Jesus who, as the Risen Christ, encounters his fearful and doubting people, grants them the Spirit and empowers them to be his witnesses in the world.
