INDIANAPOLIS -- In an advent letter to congregations General Minister and President Richard L. Hamm examines the Disciples of Christ vision "to be a faithful, growing church that demonstrates true community, deep Christian spirituality and a passion for justice."

Hamm acknowledges the challenges facing the denomination as we seek to fulfill our mission "to be and to do the Good News of Jesus Christ, witnessing loving and serving from our doorsteps 'to the ends of the earth.'" (Acts 1:8) "The Disciples of Christ are changing, not dying and change we must if we are to respond to the changes in our world, which is our mission field," writes Hamm.
