The members of our Annunciation Cathedral are called to witness to those within and those outside the community. If we believe that in Orthodoxy we have the fullness of the Truth, then we have the great responsibility to share this truth with all people. When Christ said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…” he commissioned us to transform our parish into an agency of Christian outreach. Our culture offers us great opportunities to conduct successful parish renewal, outreach and evangelism. It is time for a new beginning and a renewed effort to inspire creativity and revival in Orthodox Christianity in the United States. It is time for our beacon to shine, shine before all people regaining the missionary model that established our Church. We must let our light so shine – because unless people see in us the light and the love of Christ, they will not believe.
