Invited is a written resource intended to be used by groups and communities to help

foster conversation about and exploration into the breadth and length and depth of


Invited came out of a working group called Spirit of Invitation within the Diocese of

Toronto that was tasked with exploring new ways of encouraging Anglicans to be more

invitational. You might say that we’re a group of people who stumbled upon an exciting

idea. The Spirit of Invitation team is a diverse group of about 10 people from all kinds

of different backgrounds, ordained and lay, working together to explore the concept of

invitation. The group is co-chaired by Jeff Potter and the Rev. Canon Mark Kinghan.

Some friends of ours – the Rev. Canon Susan Bell, Canon Missioner of the Diocese of

Toronto, and the Rev. Dr. Judy Paulsen, Professor of Evangelism at Wycliffe College –

co-authored the written resource.

Invited is also a series of short films. Scripts for each of the videos were written by

Jeff Potter and Nate Wall. And Nicholas Bradford-Ewart, award-winning filmmaker

extraordinaire of Farmer Vision Media, adapted our scripts and helped us to put the

videos together.
