Tabor Missions Week

Tonight I attended the open night of Tabor Missions Week, and was glad to catch up with some of my old friends there. The theme for this week has been "Creative mission in a changing world." Various missionaries shared their stories which were all very inspiring. The followings are some of what they shared tonight:
  • Creativity is closely related to context, reflection and the Holy Spirit.
  • The importance of responding to the whole person (both physical needs and spiritual needs).
  • Transformation is through the encounter with the livng God through Jesus!
  • It's important to find creative strategies in mission.
  • The most significant things in this world are changing.
  • It's a broken world because real people have their hearts broken.
  • There is only one answer for the brokenness, and that is the person of Jesus Christ.
  • We need to go out of our comfort zone to share the message.
  • New birth is the closest thing to creation.

Great reminder for me: 'Jesus said, "Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you."' (John 20:21)
