Good Shepherd Asia Pacific

2020

PRE-ASSEMBLY PACK

WELCOME

We warmly invite you to the Asia Pacific Regional Assembly 10-12 August 2020. Our goals of gathering virtually prior to our Inter-Continental Assembly and Congregational Chapter gatherings, are

 

  • To be a Good Shepherd catalyst that takes the energy of the Asia Pacific region beyond our borders and 

  • To represent Good Shepherd Asia Pacific with passion and energy 

 

By engaging for the three days across our borders, in dialogue and contemplation, we hope to

  • Build unity across Asia Pacific beyond self, Unit and borders – moving from a “Me to We” viewpoint

  • Deepen knowledge of Good Shepherd Asia Pacific history, journey and initiatives- learning more about our resources, personnel and collaboration

  • Grow our collective understanding and confidence in addressing issues pertinent and relevant in the Asia Pacific region, to engage in active participation during the ICA 

  • Identify priorities and recommendations for ICA and the Congregational Chapter 

  • Shift consciousness to understand that we are personally responsible for creating change- from ideals to behaviour, from aspirations to actions

We look forward to our coming together for this virtual Asia Pacific Regional Assembly. May we embrace each new day with a deep gratitude to God and love for all of creation. 

 

Together in Mission,
