Steve Claris serves with the United Methodist Choctaw Mission in Mississippi, in community outreach and leadership development.

Thousands of years ago, Jesus earnestly desired to celebrate the Passover with his closest friends. During that last supper, he created the first Holy Communion, a sacrament of remembrance. Today, we remember God's love for us before we could love ourselves. We remember the struggle, the pain, the suffering of Christ before our captive souls were set free. We remember the peace of the Spirit entering our hearts--we really are children of God!

Roadmap to Renewal is intended to guide congregations to understand mission in new ways.

Picture yourself joining seven to twelve others from your church on a road trip in a van. The team starts out knowing that they want to arrive at a destination that is better than the current reality of their community of faith. Along the way they converse with each other. They get out of the van and talk to people in their area about community needs. They visit other churches to learn what has made them healthy and vital. They rediscover their church setting and discern what God is calling their church to be and to do at this point in time.

All of these tasks were undertaken even as the Methodist Church leaders themselves were recovering from their own loss and grief. Many church leaders were sleeping in their cars or on their roofs to protect against the aftershocks.
