I’ve been pondering this article a little ever since I came across it a few days ago.
Do make sure you read the whole article (next buttons at the bottom).
Incarnational mission was the slap in the face this Sunday. We had a couple come to speak about working with westerners in India (hippies etc). Working with whom they were really suited and at the same time a group of people that were as a whole, overlooked.
The question is, I am fairly confident and have been for some time, that I wont end up working overseas unless it happens to be in a ‘western’ type culture. Why? Not sure. I do know what it’s like to do the typical missionary thing – I grew up in that environment. I don’t think that’s what God has for me. That leaves me with something a lot closer to home. This could be Rebecca just living her life in Australia and not going out of the way beyond the people within arms reach, or it could mean something more. In the past little while things have eventuated in to something almost tangible.
Possibilities are interesting.
