Church follows Mission

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : July 25, 2005

Check out a great conversation that is happening at Radical Congruency (here and here).   Here’s a snippet:

all attempts to try [to] contextualise spirituality, theology,
and worship divorced from, and prior to, an active missional engagement
remain futile and frustrating

I’m not exactly sure I jibe with this statement.  If the church IS mission, then any active missional engagement that is done by 2 or more in the name of Christ IS church.  However, if by "church" we mean something more institutional or ritualized or more of what we think of as "church," then I wholeheartedly agree.  At any rate, it is a worthy matter for discussion.
