I am on the home stretch of my annual conference circuit this summer. Everywhere I’ve been I’ve shared my three-fold expression of mission.
- To be and help others to be like Jesus Christ. This is at the heart of God’s call to be holy and loving people!
- To love the world the way God did and does—he gave his best, his one and only.
- To follow Jesus to the people, especially the poor, weak and vulnerable who, given the world as it is, stand little chance of embracing and being embraced by the GOOD NEWS.
Everywhere I’m finding huge buy-in on these foci. I think it’s a sign of growing alignment with kingdom currents moving around and among us!
