Food for Thought

My classmate Pat's blog entry today on the Missional Church is insightful. It portrays much of what we've been talking about the past two weeks.

I'd challenge you to not only read it, but think about what it would look like if we did church in this way: Sunday worship would be a celebration of all God had done the other six days. It would be a time to perhaps be equipped for ministry, to encourage one another, to worship together. And from there, we all go out into our places of work and community to be salt and light. We take God into the world with us.

This means we all become missionaries. And ministers. We use the gifts God has given us to not only work to put bread on the table, but to establish or represent God's kingdom. It also means that children, women and men would all be ministers.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Imagine that.
