Prisoners in Iran and pastors in North America voice the same question: Are we willing to follow Jesus, whatever the cost? The threat may be persecution or complacency. Either can be paralyzing if we are not prepared.
So, what are our blind spots and stumbling blocks as Western Christians in global mission today? And whether we are serving at home or abroad, how can we engage the cultural complexities of this generation with the Gospel, making disciples in covenant with God communities … who in turn become missional leaders … who in turn make more disciples?
Discipleship is the call of the Great Commission. As we prayerfully seek the way forward together, how can we respond and lead with discernment, integrity and clarity?
