Alan RoxburghPractices of a Missional People

Alan Roxburgh giver i artiklen "Practices of a Missional People" (Journal of Missional Practice. Autumn 2013) et bud på, hvordan kristne i dag kan deltage i Guds mission i deres lokalområde gennem missionale praksisser. Med henvisning til beretningen i Lukasevangeliet kap. 10 om Jesus, der udsender 72 disciple, skriver han bl.a. "A initiating practice will involve, for example, a readiness to reconnect with neighbour; to sit at their table, to be welcomed without predetermined agendas about making people into something predefined by internal or denominationally programmatized ‘discipleship’ proposals. A second practice would involve listening to what is actually happening among the people of the communities where we live.... When the Seventy enter the towns and villages, they are to dwell, sit at the table and work in the fields, with their hosts. This is about attending to the questions: ‘Who are these people?’ and ‘Where are they?’ without which there is no discernment, no hearing the Spirit and no missional engagement."Download.
