On the Courageous Imagination Journey
Update from Leah Reesor-Keller, MCEC Executive Minister

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Courageous Imagination Regional Gatherings. 

Over 160 people from 56 MCEC congregations across Eastern Canada, contributed their voices and insight to this important leg of the Courageous Imagination journey. This has been and continues to be a community spiritual discernment process where as a regional church body – a gathered community – we look to where God is calling us into the future. I ask for your prayers as we continue to listen for God's leading in our MCEC family of faith.

See, I am doing a new thing! Do you not perceive it?
I am making a way...
Isaiah 43:19 

Our Hope is to Facilitate a Journey Where:
All voices are empowered to share how we can courageously follow God together.
Connections are made with each other and between congregations through conversations.
Together we will imagine and distill our shared values and mission of MCEC for the future.

Questions Guiding our Journey

  • How do we listen for God?
  • Where is God at work doing new things?  Where have we experienced God at work?
  • Who are we together? What is the church that we are becoming?
  • How is God calling us as the church together?
  • How do you feel God is calling the church to respond and adapt to the changing local and global context?

Many people have invested deeply in MCEC to bring us to where we are today
and we continue to build upon their faithfulness.

Our vision is to grow as communities of grace, joy and peace,
so that God's healing and hope can flow through us to the world.

This journey is to bring us forward to live into the shared vision and direction of where God is taking us next.

Beginning the Journey with Prayer

Read a message from Leah Reesor-Keller, MCEC Executive Minister, as she shares about the Courageous Imagination virtual prayer gathering that took place on February 14, 2021. The journey itself is as important as where we end up. Like a pilgrimage, it is a shared experience that will transform us along the way. The outcome is the mission, values and strategic priorities that will shape all of us in the years to come. Beginning this journey in prayer roots us in the past, grounds us in the present and stretches us into the future.
