New version of the Great Commission unearthed in England

Steve Addison posted the following, last year - before he made his most recent visit, when we linked up. I'm interested to hear whether he found this manuscript!
I realise it was tongue in cheek, but it is a perspective a number of people have of us here in the UK and most jokes have at least a nugget of truth!
Of course, having just returned from the USA I'm aware we have an aversion to anything, which smacks of pure pragmatism, but if 'just do it' has become 'just do nothing" we have a much bigger problem.

Great Commission
In a development that is going to rock the world of Christian missions, a previously undiscovered version of the Great Commission has been uncovered in England.
According to this ancient manuscript, the Risen Lord gathers his disciples together and says,
Lads, don’t go anywhere, don’t do anything. What I want you to do is to devote a substantial amount of time over the next two years to considering a strategy for the evangelisation of the world and how you might lead the church in that task.
The authenticity of this version of the Great Commission has not yet been verified, but is already turning our understanding of Christian mission on its head.
