Theology 21: Renovating Theology for A New Generation
"Missions are at the heart of what it means to be a Christian. Spreading the Gospel is not something consigned to just a few missionaries in far away lands or by paid church staff reaching out to a local community. Every Christian is a missionary. Every Christian, no matter what age, what career path, or how busy, is responsible for making disciples, serving those in need, and act as the living representatives of Jesus Christ on earth." Jon Keck
Theology 21 and its authors attempt to wrestle with controversial and interesting topics in today's world. For them this idea of theology has become the constant "pursuit and attempt to meet and understand God". This last week I was asked to answer three questions in which some of you following this blog may find interseting...
1) Tell us a little a bit about your story before God called you and where He has taken you since you gave your life to Christ?
2) When and How did God call you to Costa Rica?
3) What has God done in, through, and around you while serving the Gospel and people of La Finca?
Check out the article "Why No Matter Who You Are, You Are A Missionary" for my response.
