I’ve been thinking about what the cost is to being missional. I know of a handful of people who are living missionally who are struggling financially, some seriously struggling. On the other hand there is a great reap from being missional in terms of ministry, life experiences, God experiences and expectations. There have been several posts over the past few months about how we support people who are missionally minded. We should all be living missionally, but not many take up the call.
When we move to Canada I know we will be living this way. I guess we should now, but it is hard to really get involved within a community that you might only be part of for another six months or so. Maybe this is just a cop out? I have many questions though, as I know that it will not be easy to raise support, especially as most traditional mission organisations do not think a long the same lines as post-modern Christians do. I feel quite scared at times about our future, I know I need to trust in God more.
What do you think are the good and the bad aspects of living your life missionally?
Are you trying to live this way?
