*use your best Rod Serling voice right there*
Anyway, imagine that you (and your spouse, if applicable) have been selected as an “Anchor Member” of the First Christian Church to be established on Mars, as part of the 21st Century Mars settlement project scheduled somewhere between 2025 and 2040.
Imagine that by whatever process you’ve been selected as part of a 10 person team to establish Christianity on Mars by your own denomination or other appropriate religious authority. Your mandate is unique. You have no denominationally specific theological constraints. Your mission is not to proselytize for your sect, it is to lift up Christ and provide for the needs of exploration teams and future colonists. Your assignment will be permanent, and you are establishing what may be a foundation for generations to come.
What would that be like?
What would be your goals and priorities?
How would you develop consensus with other members of your team from other Christian denominations? (In this… how, in fact, would you DEFINE ‘Christian denomination’?)
If your only agreed upon standard of unanimity were the Holy Bible itself, how would you approach this task with your team?
