Today, Tomorrow, and Our Future
We are still here. We are still needed. Our work is not done. Our Mission IS Possible.
MCC is in a new phase of its movement, just as the early church found itself in a new phase in the Second Century after waiting a very long time for Jesus’ imminent return and discovering they had to build a new set of objectives. They had to build a church. Just as the early church was a deeply radical, inclusive, and fiery movement in the First Century, MCC also was a deeply radical, fiery, inclusive movement in its beginnings. And, just as the early church found itself assimilating into surrounding cultures, trying to redefine itself in the Second Century under new circumstances, so must MCC redefine itself for a new era.
