Mission or Consumption?
I came across this quote from Mike Frost, a pioneering Missiologist the other day:
"Many churches don’t have communities of missionaries, but audiences of consumers"
I tend to agree with him. We've been so entrenched in coming to a church service/meeting (usually on a Sunday), sitting there and waiting to 'get' something out of it. What if Churches were people who were equipped, called, and energised to be the missionary people of God WHEREVER they find themselves? That thought has captured me, and I want to aim to be a leader who can do that in my own church community.
Grace and Peace,
