It is no longer enough to simply build a structure and expect people to appear. There needs to be an intentional effort to issue invitations; invitations that might appear via electronic media in websites and social networking sites, through the print media, and, most effectively, through an active, visible presence in the community. But people will want to know the nature of the invitation. What is the party to which we are inviting them? For this we will need to be very clear how we envision our role in nurturing individual spirits while helping heal our world. This vision is articulated through Preaching, Teaching, and Caring.
