Gospel Verbs, Ascension Edition

Depending on how or when you observe, from tomorrow or this weekend’s last Scripture reading:

Go, therefore,
and make disciples
of all nations,
baptizing them
in the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe
all that I have commanded you.

Note those verbs in the Christian’s mission statement: go, make, baptize, teach. I suppose each of us would have a particular expertise. And I mean that as a quality separate from canonical justifications. The Alleluia verse narrows it down:

Go and teach all nations, says the Lord;
I am with you always, until the end of the world.

Go and teach here.
