Over and over, Jesus calls people to be his followers. He renews them with the Holy Spirit. He encourages them with prayer and blessings. Over and over, Jesus sends those followers out as healers and missionaries of peace to a world that is always in need.

We send people, following the model of Jesus. We send people to be healers of a broken world because the world just keeps on breaking. We send people to be missionaries of peace because the world keeps needing it. (If as Christians our work cannot be described as healing and peacemaking, we should reconsider whether we can call it “Christian.”)
