Have we come full circle? Do we find ourselves, today, in a mission context very similar to that of Paul and the early Church?
The word ‘mission’ has been defined both by theology and context. The context, for the past two hundred years, has been the ‘modern missionary movement’ that began, developed and grew during the Colonial period of world history.
Mobilization is a journey, not an event. Seminars, courses and other mobilization programs are the events. The journey into active and fruitful participation in the world Christian movement is a journey that demands many ‘events’ and a lot of personal processing of what these events provide, in the form of new information and challenges.
