By Making Disciples and Making a Difference. OUR VISION Our vision as a diocese is to be a community of disciples committed to following Jesus Christ into the dream of God for us and for all creation. OUR MISSION Empowered by the Holy Spirit, the Diocese of North Carolina seeks to live God’s dream by making disciples and making a difference.

The Bishop of North Carolina

Just When Did The Hebrew Slaves Become Free? When did the Hebrew slaves in Egypt become free? Was it after the series of plagues on Egypt, which were God’s protest demonstrations against the enslavement or mistreatment of any child of God, by any other child of God? Was it after God’s final protest on the night of the Passover, when the Pharaoh of all Egypt had had enough and demanded that the Hebrews leave? Was it in those incredible moments when a strange wind blew back standing water and created a highway out of Egypt, through the Red Sea, to a place where they would be free? Just when did the Hebrew slaves become free? Those moments certainly unveiled what was already the new reality, what God had already dreamed and decreed. But I suspect the real dawn of freedom began when a Hebrew slave envisioned another possibility besides a lifetime spent in slavery. It happened when a slave beheld a vision of God’s freedom. That’s when the slave became free, long before anyone actually saw anything change. Some years ago biblical scholar Walter Brueggemann in his classic book, The Prophetic Imagination, wrote that when Moses encountered God in the vision of the burning bush (Exodus 3), he beheld another possibility, he saw an “alternative vision,” and he heard a narrative quite different from the vision decreed and declared by the gods and powers of Egypt. And that new vision, long before its actual realization, was the dawn of freedom. The Gospel of Jesus Christ offers just that kind of vision. It presents an alternative to the vision of life as it is often lived. It runs counter to the narrative that’s usually the news of the day. The Gospel of Jesus incarnates


a vision of God, a vision of the Kingdom, a vision of life and human community in which we awake from the nightmare -- and God’s dream becomes real. I invite you to join me each day in the year to come in reading and meditating on the Gospel appointed for the day, as found in the Daily Office Lectionary of the Book of Common Prayer. May our daily readings of the Holy Gospels help us all see God’s other possibility for freedom and life. And as we follow in the footsteps of Jesus, may our meditations help us actually live and witness to God’s vision in the world. God bless you and, Keep the faith,

What is Gospel Based Discipleship?

Gospel Based Discipleship is an encounter with the Gospel that is designed to engage people with the Gospel.

Some Ways to Begin

There are many ways to read, study and meditate on passages of Scripture. You should use any approach that helps you engage the Gospel. I encourage you to incorporate this into other ways of daily devotions you may already use. Here is one method of reflecting on the Gospel.


Begin with prayer. 1. Read the Gospel lesson for the day. What word (s), idea (s) or sentence (s) stand out for you? 2. Re-read the Gospel (maybe in another translation if available). What is Jesus (the Gospel) saying to you? 3. Re-read the Gospel. What is Jesus (the Gospel) calling you to do? Close with prayer.

In GBD, there are no right or wrong answers.

The engagement is with the Gospel in the center, not with a leader or the search for correct answers. Experienced leaders are not required, and leadership should rotate. Groups and/or individuals using GBD regularly should expect to begin to see their call to mission differently, and some congregations use GBD as a way to focus on what God is calling them to do in their community.


Some Prayers for Use with Gospel Based Discipleship God of peace, let us your people know, that at the heart of turbulence there is an inner calm that comes from faith in you. Keep us from being content with things as they are, that from this central peace there may come a creative compassion, a thirst for justice, and a willingness to give of ourselves in the Spirit of Christ. Amen. A New Zealand Prayer Book Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. The Book of Common Prayer O God, who has taught us that your Word is a lantern to our feet and a light to our path: Grant that as this community devoutly reads the Holy Scriptures, we may realize our Fellowship with one another in you, and may learn thereby to know you more fully, to love you more truly, and to follow more faithfully in the steps of your Son Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and Holy Spirit, one God blessed for evermore. Amen. The Wolf Shall Dwell with The Lamb by Eric H. F. Law Most gracious and loving God: Strengthen the hearts of your people in this Diocese, That loving you with our whole heart, And loving our neighbor as ourselves, We might, in the power of the Spirit, Obey the call of Jesus, To go into our world as disciples, Making disciples, And making a difference, Through your saving love. Amen. The Mission Prayer of the Diocese of North Carolina


The Baptismal Covenant I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit And was born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, died and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, And is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge both the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, The holy catholic Church, The communion of saints, The forgiveness of sins, The resurrection of the body, And the life everlasting. Amen. Will you continue in the Apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers? Will you persevere in resisting evil, and, whenever you fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord? Will you proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ? Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself? Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being? The Book of Common Prayer, Holy Baptism, pages 304-305 The duty of all Christians is to follow Christ; to come together week by week for corporate worship; and to work, pray, and give for the spread of the kingdom of God.
