In the Strib again

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : August 18, 2007

For some reason, Missio Dei intrigues the Star Tribune.  We’re in the faith and values section for the third time now…the first time in an article about the emerging church and house churches…the second time as a feature about New Monasticism, and now in an article about small churches.  Check out the main article here, and the additional blurb about Missio Dei here.  Not all the details about us are correct, but it is close enough. ;)

I’m not sure what it is about Missio Dei that draws attention from the Star Tribune.  We’re a small struggling church that gets little attention from mainstream church.  And it isn’t as though folks are beating down our doors to visit.  The first two times the paper wrote about us made us feel special.  But now we’re just confused.  I’d gladly trade this publicity for just one solid member who wants to serve the West Bank.  But such folks are rare.  Perhaps if we were a seeker church, this sort of free publicity would benefit Missio Dei.  But we’re not that sort of church.  In the end, this stuff doesn’t help us in our goal to incarnate Christ to our neighborhood.
