I was able to invest time today in a little writing project I’ve been putting off.
Here’s what I’m working on:
Those who answer the call to become Jesus’ disciples are called to be missional, incarnational people. Yet, too often, the practice of our Christian faith and mission focuses on us rather than on God’s mission in the world; we live more like consumers than disciples on mission with God. In order to faithfully follow Christ, our practice of the Christian faith must transition from a consumeristic focus on ourselves to a missional focus on God’s mission in the world.
This little writing project will develop a set of missional practices—small, intentional actions that taken consistently over time will form people to live like Jesus and join in God’s activity in the world. These practices will lead to the development of a Rule of Life to guide both individuals and church communities as they live missional, incarnational lives.
