The Chastisement of our Peace

We began our day with a group devotional on the bus. A retired woman named Arrie talked about her first mission experiences in G.A.s. She said that the first bible verse she learned in her little mission group was Isaiah 53:6, "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the the iniquity of us all." That passage of love has guided her heart all these long years. Arrie made a statement about missional living that I thought was very insightful. She said, "As a girl I learned about 'home' and 'foreign' missions, now I know there is just church missions." She has come to accept the New Testament model of congregational based missions. I think we are making some progress toward authentic missional Christianity.

The family from the RV park came to our children's ministry today. They will be back tomorrow!
