Journey of Hearts & Hands: Rock the Mission

Journey of Hearts & Hands2016 Appeal


Psalm 18:2 reveals that the Lord is our rock, and in Him we find refuge. We know there are individuals and communities who are fragile and wounded, and who need His refuge. The Lord’s refuge is not only about His protection for us, but also speaks to the vastness of His unending mercy and love. 

Our response to that love is service. God calls us to be missionary disciples to people in need. God’s mercy and love encourages us to be willing stewards of the gifts with which He has blessed us, and willing servants of His compassion, hope, and love. God calls us to be a refuge: to care for His family and for one another. 

The Lord is our rock and our refuge. In God the Father, we find strength. With Jesus, we minister to our brothers and sisters. Through the Holy Spirit, we offer the best we can: His love and refuge. 

Thank you for helping us be the hearts and hands of God’s saving mercy and love for people in need. 

In Communion,

Most Reverend Gary Gordon
Bishop of Victoria
