I have worked with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) for 22 years. Currently I lead one of our main train into campus’ in England as well as being involved in wider leadership in Europe. During the last 2 decades I have worked all over the world being ivnolved in lots of missional contexts and communities. I am passionate about how Christians express and communicate their faith in the every day. Gods mission is about communicating his steadfast kindness and patience towards all of humanity. Gods message to us is that he wants us to love Him as well as one another to the same degree that we love ourselves. I suppose we can only do that once we trully understand what God is like and what he really thinks about us. Jesus is the key here.
Whatever you think about Christians (lets face it, we are far from perfect) ……when they actually obey Jesus’ commands and try to live the way he lived, it is an incredibly beautiful and profound thing. It’s about loving one another, forgiveness, generosity, hospitality, grace, fun, food, community, family, more fun, some more forgiveness………….you get the picture.
So much of the outworking of this is found in experimentation and creativity, and just trying to live life in all its fullness. This blog is an attempt to discuss life, explore missional practice and to tell stories.
I would love to hear from you.
