What’s Selfie Sunday?

June 15th, 2016

Do you want to play a simple but very significant role in a larger vision? Well, it all starts with Selfie Sunday this October.


It’s not about THAT kind of selfie! It’s more like this:


We begin this adventure with a self-portrait of our churches: capturing unique moments that will last forever. But it is also about so much more.


On Selfie Sunday you can take a picture of your church family. I’d love you to capture a taste of moments in the life of your church during the week also: the small things that we sometimes take for granted, and the things which really excite us.


It just wouldn’t be a true snap-shot of us if we didn’t receive from you a great selection of photos and stories reflecting the amazing diversity of the Churches of Christ family: from the simplest, poignant image through to the craziest of antics.


It would also be wonderful if you could share with us all a little about your church. I hope it will help you to explore these three famous questions:


  1. Who are you?
  2. How did you get here?
  3. And where are you going?


The leadership of Churches of Christ feel that now God is calling us to discern the Spirit’s work in our movement. We would love you to play a role in the larger vision. Your photos and stories will become part of a giant snap-shot of our church family at this point of time.


My hope is this will strengthen the unity and solidarity among us, as we build new connections in friendship and ministry. I believe that we’ll learn from one another’s stories, as we celebrate the liberty which drives the great variety of ministries happening in our churches. And I think in this kaleidoscope of life we will see in all things love. The love of Christ expressed in word and deed.


Perhaps this will be a witness to our God at work across the nation. We might even be inspired as we hear about great things being done in Jesus’ name. Who knows what the Holy Spirit might do through Selfie Sunday?


Where are you going as a church? Where are we going together as Churches of Christ? I hope you’ll join us in this journey and play your role in Selfie Sunday.
