Today in worship we talked about how our most important mission as Christians is how we live everyday in our work, with our friends and family, and in the other things we spend our time doing. Much of our ministry is in the world. Our passage for today is part of Jesus' great prayer to God the Father about the disciples. He prays about the tension that the disciples (and we) face: they are in the world, but connected to God beyond the world. Jesus sends the disciples into the world like the Father sent him. We are the sent people in mission to the world with prayer.
