The people of our world are marvellously diverse. There hundreds of different languages. People, wherever they live, have their own cultures – distinguish between places a little way away in exactly the same way that people who aren’t from Warrington distinguish themselves from people from Warrington.

I read Eddie’s blog because it is a stimulus and a challenge to me. When I’m at my best, I like being made to think and to question assumptions. (I phrased it in that way because at my worst, I can be just as defensive and intellectually torpid as the next man.)

Jesus words in John 20:21 have been significant in helping me develop a different missionary perspective – ” As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” I see now that the special call doesn’t matter, the place doesn’t matter, what does matter is the Jesus has sent me and I am as “sent” here as others are “sent” there. Jesus told his early disciples to be disciples who make disciples. Does he say the same to us? Obvious answer – “Yes”.

Meet Kouyanet reader, David Bunce. Latterly of St Andrews, David is now a pastoral assistant in Vienna. He bakes bread, reads Karl Barth and is interested in languages; what a nice guy!
A plea for help from the esteemed and highly intelligent readers of Kouyanet.
I may read a better book this year, but with only three months left, it seems highly unlikely unless something really good crosses my desk. Dominion: The Making of the Western Mind is readable, interesting, highly informative and it is important; whoever you are, you should read it.
Our theology impacts the way we do mission; whether we think in those terms or not.

Whatever their strengths as a style statement, fig leaves are not suitable as working clothes; they don’t offer much protection from thorn bushes (I’m not speaking from personal experience, I hasten to add).
