The Church Is Mission

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.
