While there are no end to the conferences and events about this or that next thing in Christian and missional life, the upcoming Missio Alliance event has me (cautiously) optimistic. Here’s what the site says:
Exploring the shape of a missional encounter with this new context calls for asking fresh questions and engaging in dialogue about topics as fundamental as the gospel, humanity, Scripture, the Holy Spirit, and the Kingdom of God; all framed around the role of the Church in relationship to God’s mission in the world.
For this inaugural conference, we’ve invited a diverse and compelling group of practitioners, theologians, and missiologists to speak and facilitate dialogue around these and a wide array of related issues. This conference is just the beginning of what we hope to see God do through the Missio Alliance in years to come.
Check out the website for more details. While I lack the means to attend such an event, I will be very eager to hear how things play out.
