Preaching for God’s World is a resource for preachers, offering thoughts and reflections on each Sunday’s Revised Common Lectionary readings viewed through the lens of the Anglican Five Marks of Mission – in particular, caring for people and planet.
The Five Marks of Mission express the Anglican understanding of what it means to live faithfully and holistically in the world. They reflect Jesus’ mission to bring good news to the poor, release for the oppressed and fullness of life to all (Luke 4:18; John 10:10) and humanity’s role to “tend and keep” the earth (Genesis 2:15).
Anglicans therefore take caring for people and planet seriously and also see these as principal ways we share in God’s ongoing story of love in the world.
Reflections come from preachers, practitioners, theologians and activists from across the world, demonstrating both the diversity of our experiences and our unity as one body of Christ.
