Okay, don’t worry. I would never ask you that question. In fact, I would probably be uncomfortable if you asked me that question.

Today, I started my J-term class, Mission of the Triune God II. I have already taken Mission I, but the first day of Mission II was still very introductory. It made me think, though, about people’s initial impression of “mission,” “evangelism,” or “evangelization” ? Are you confident that the church is the instrument of God? Or maybe that God is at work in the world and our job is to seek out and join in what God is up to? Or has someone confronted you in a public place and questioned your faith? Or knocked on your door with a pamphlet?

Mission is a passion of mine, but it so often gets a bad rap. I’m anxious to hear people’s thoughts.
