This time tomorrow I’ll be on the beach relaxing and starting a week of vacation.  One book that I am looking forward to digging into is “The Mission of God,” by Christopher Wright

0830825711m

Here are a couple of gems that I’ve already discovered in this book:

“The Bible renders to us the story of God’s mission through God’s people in their engagement with God’s world for the sake of the whole of God’s creation.”

“Fundamentally, our mission (if it is biblically informed and validated) means our committed participation as God’s people, at God’s invitation and command, in God’s own mission within the history of God’s world for the redemption of God’s creation.”

(fyi: that means that this blog won’t be updated until at least next week).
