1,000 “Mission Resolutions” is New Year target
Church Mission Society challenges 1,000 people to make a resolution that counts this January
The Church Mission Society is launching an ambitious project to ask 1,000 people to make a Mission Resolution this New Year.
The idea is simple – either on Facebook (www.facebook.com/1000resolutions
) or on a new action-sharing website www.WeAreSayingYes.org
make a resolution to put a bit more of God’s mission into your everyday life.
There are a whole range of mission resolution suggestions on the We Are Saying Yes site, or you can create your own:
• Pray for people ahead of you in the supermarket queue
• Join a campaign
• Make friends with someone of another faith
• Go on a fast from impulse buys
…and many more.
“So many people have given up making resolutions because they think they’ll never keep them,” said Church Mission Society’s web manager, Jeremy Woodham.
“We’re giving people the chance to make a resolution that matters – and providing a space for them to share tips, ask for prayer and tell their stories.”
People can upload photos and videos of themselves making and carrying out their resolutions on Facebook and at the website.
The website www.WeAreSayingYes.org
also offers participants the chance to post prayer requests, ask others for advice, share stories and even promote their mission events.
“We think the impact of 1,000 people taking a small step in mission could have a fantastic ripple effect.”
