What? How often do we mix this up? This past weekend we shared a little bit more about life in the orphanage at Fedja and the proposed solution to the problems they are experiencing there. The solution, proposed by GVCM director Yves Prophete, is the planting of a church next door to the orphanage.
What kind of implications does this have for our understanding of church? What if the local expressions of the church were simply a means to end and not the end in and of themselves? Thatis, the church just might be God’s means of accomplishing his mission, the in-breaking of his Kingdom, in our world. Perhaps the church can begin asking the question: How are we to be involved in what God is doing in the world?
After seeking God’s answer to the above question we can then discover what the church looks like. What do you think? Could this be true?
