Jesus sends us out his followers “two by two” on purpose.  God links our discipleship and ministry to ensure our confidence in Him and our solidarity with one another.  Seeing myself as part of a community is essential to my understanding and experience of ministry.  God’s plan is radically communal.  No one is sent out or arrives back alone.

Come Holy Spirit, and inspire in me and my fellow disciples a sense of common purpose.  God loves each of us as if we are the only one, yet He loves all of us at once.
