how was the small missional communities conversation?
Very good to be involved in the CMS-hosted conversation around forming small missional communities of the global Jesus in an emerging world. A mix of people already involved in projects and those who would like to be. Great to share and be inspired by stories of simple but innovative stuff being done - like Mark Berry and Safe Space and Diane and Steve Eyre and Imagine. One of the themes that surfaced was around creating encounter spaces, spaces where we can encounter the divine, our neighbour and ourselves. It seems to me that this encounter space must come from who are and from our location, an authentic outcome of our attempting to follow Christ in our own setting. We finished by working on possibilities for further networking and mentoring. I'll blog more as this unfolds.
