Invited - Video Series - Exploring Genuine Christian Invitation

Invited logo



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.

Mission Possible Study

The Diocese of Moosonee..... called by God to Live and Proclaim the Gospel.   As we move more deeply into living our Vision Statement, tools will be needed.  Dioceses across Canada are sharing their resources with one another via the website of the national church:  One resource is a Five Week Study entitled "Mission Possible" consisting of a weekly  Leader's Guide, Participants' booklet and Power Point Presentation.  It could be used during Lent, with whole parishes or with Vestries.  It is a great resource which has now been placed on the Diocese of Moosonee website for your convenience.

“My hope is that this program will begin a fruitful and lasting conversation on what it means to be missional in your own context.” Archbishop Colin Johnson, Archbishop of Moosonee
