On December 28th, I will have the priveledge of preaching at Creekside. I’ve been tending to preach this last weekend of the year for the past couple of years, so I try to look forward to the next year. Last Year, I talked about how the Church is a community that is called to Exile. We are called to be on a Journey. I was trying to make the point that the Church is not a destination.
This year I want to talk about what it means to live missionally. The title I’m leaning towards right now is the year of living missionally.
My thinking has been shaped by a lot of different voices on this, but if you want to get a good primer on what it means to be missional (because I know that I don’t have all the answers). Then may I direct you to friendofmissional.org. This site has all kinds of great resources and defintions that you can work with. I can’t do it all in one sunday so I know that I need to really just get the idea in our heads so that we can begin to carry it out all year, and beyond.
