What does a Mark of Mission look like?
Calling all Anglican photographers! Pull out your cameras, your fancy lenses, or your smartphones for our new photo contest. Capture an image that depicts one or all of the Marks of Mission and send it in to the General Synod office by January 1, 2013.
Winning photos will be displayed at the 2013 Anglican-Lutheran Joint Assembly next summer in Ottawa and may be published in various Anglican church publications.
Think big when crafting these images. They can be in colour or black and white, of people or places or things. The photograph must be original and previously unpublished. You may submit a maximum of five photos.
Once you've snapped or selected your image, share it in the highest resolution you have available (JPEG, TIFF) and upload it to this website.
This is the third contest in the Marks of Mission initiative. The first called for Sunday School ideas and was won by Kate Newman of Vancouver, Kate Saunders of Richmond, N.B., and Janet Cress and Nancy Wilcox of Binbrook, Ont. The product of that contest, the Compendium of the Church Mice is now available as a free, online Sunday School curriculum.
The second contest called for a Marks of Mission song. The winner, Jaylene Johnson, recorded her piece in Vancouver last spring. The song and music video will be released next fall.
The Marks of Mission are:
- To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
- To teach, baptize, and nurture new believers
- To respond to human need by loving service
- To seek to transform the unjust structures of society
- To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth
