From Bishop Stephen Lane:
The Mission Priorities and Mission Strategy Study Groups, appointed following the 2009 Diocesan Convention, have been hard at work for the past 18 months listening to many, many voices in the Diocese of Maine.
Their efforts have been focused on making recommendations for how our 65 congregations can become God’s people strengthened for mission in our local communities, how we can collaborate, and how we can learn together from each success and each challenge faced in ministry across Maine.
The Study Groups have produced seven draft resolutions for consideration by our Diocesan Convention in October. However, before they are refined and submitted to the Resolutions Committee for review, they are being made available for comment on our diocesan website.
