Sine, “Reimagining Whole-Life Mission”

August 19, 2008

I love Sine’s advice: “Begin really, really small” (277).  As a Presbyterian, I’m trained to think in programs.  I want to shift everything at once and put everyone on a new path.  That’s, of course, not the way do to things that stick.  God works slowly, through process, through journey, through relationships that build over time.  If we want this thing to stick, this new thing that God is doing, this ushering in of the new kingdom here and now, we’d better start with this really small thing, this mustard seed that will (like the stubborn weed it is) take over the world.
