Tonight in my church leadership class we were asked to craft a personal mission statement. I’d done this before when reading The Path, but tonight’s exercise was good too. Though this version is wordier, but I like it. Here it is:
I am a flawed but forgiven person called to serve the Lord and lead people to Jesus. I have a creative and passionate heart that is manifest through hard work and indomitable spirit. I am called to love God and to love, support, and defend my neighbors so that we may grow closer to God. My life is best when focused on honesty and integrity, but lived in vulnerability.
