To serve

    Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I
    have commanded you. And remember, I am with you
    always, to the end of the age.

  • contextualization is a delicate enterprise if
    ever there was one . . . the evangelist and
    mission strategist stand on a razors edge, aware
    that to fall off on either side has terrible
    consequences . . .

35
  • fall to the right and you end in obscurantism, so
    attached to your conventional ways of practicing
    and teaching the faith that you veil its truth
    and power from those who are trying to see it
    through very different eyes.

36
  • slip to the left and you tumble into syncretism,
    so vulnerable to the impact of paganism in its
    multiplicity of forms that you compromise the
    uniqueness of Christ and concoct another gospel
    which is not a gospel.
  • Dean S. Gilliland, ed., The Word Among Us
    (Dallas Word Publishing, 1989), vii.

missio Dei
  • Jesus Christ is the embodiment of that mission
  • the Holy Spirit is the power of that mission
  • the church is the instrument of that mission
  • and the culture is the context in which that
    mission occurs.

    the 21st Century in Christian Mission, ed. James
