Some Good Thoughts on Mission

Contemplating mission today and our place, meaning the place God has put us in this  world.  Makes me think of some quotes to ponder. Maybe one or more will speak to you about this.

”Churches should strive to create an alternative community, deeply placed in risk, summoned in baptism to a world in which God is a pivotal player.”

Walter Brueggemann

 

The child of God knows that the graced life calls him or her to live on a cold and windy mountain, not on the flattened plain of reasonable, middle of the road religion.

Brennan Manning

 

“If we just lock ourselves away and pray and do not engage with the lost then we miss the point of what this is all about.“

Brian Heasley 

 

“If our church is not marked by caring for the poor, the oppressed, and the hungry, then we are guilty of heresy.”

Ignatius of Loyola

 

“If people don’t know your passion you don’t have one.”

Bill Wilson
