This is Glocal Mission
What an incredible experience it was for June and me with our children to be on mission in China not by ourselves but with this spectacular CCF family! It was a delight to connect these two worlds that jointly capture our hearts. And it seems there are more, similar ventures on the horizon in following the lead of Jesus, the ultimate cross-cultural "sent one".
This past Sunday was a spectacular opportunity to see how God is shaping and expanding our missional horizons. From China, Peru, Kenya and South Africa; sharing from 3 continents located in a 4th is a remarkable expression of who we are; a church of the nations and for the nations.
Equally the delight of the past weeks has been that we have heard and seen testimonies in word and baptisms of the mission of God extending forth in our neighborhoods, showing that God is no respecter of persons and draws everyone into his family and equips us all as ambassadors of the good news of Jesus, his salvation and transformation in our lives.
This is glocal mission. Global expression, local expression all without rank and distinction because it is all part of the world God loved so much that he sent Jesus to redeem.
