The Great Commission

On Tuesday I mentioned The Great Commission in my post here. I didn't go any farther though and so t seems appropriate to say just a bit more.

The Great Commission, for those of you who may not know, is the instruction of the resurrected Jesus to his disciples, that they spread his teachings to everyone. It has become a tenet in Christian theology emphasizing mission work evangelism (the E word that I mentioned most Episcopalians stay away from).

Looking it up in your Bible? The most famous version of the Great Commission is in Saint Matthew's gospel (28:16-20), where Jesus calls on his followers to baptize all nations in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

So my dear friends, keep spreading the word!
