missional pleas

Over the last several months, I have heard other ministers, speakers, authors talking about living missionally. This encourages me, but they aren’t referring to what they are saying as “missional.” Which is okay too, but I do think more and more of us church folk are grasping something of the importance of being missional where we live, shop, workout, etc. Our communities would do well if those of us who claim allegiance to Jesus lived out the implications of our faith and were an active voice in community involvement. Shame on us for hiding out in our comfortable pews, and in our homes instead of volunteering at local schools, local food pantries, local etc… We need to transition from being Ostriches with our head in the sand to being lion’s out on the prowl.
