Buzzword Buzzkill: Missional
You’ve heard the word. You’ve probably used it yourself a few times. Missional. But what does it really mean?
I’m not going to tell you. Instead, go read/watch/listen to what these folks have to say!
Anthony Smith has an article coming out soon (sometime?) on the meaning of “missional.” I look forward to others reading that and engaging with it.
This is pretty funny (HT: Jonathan Brink):
I’ve been trying to start a meme on Twitter using the hashtag #missionalmonday. Hopefully in the future we’ll see more tweets on Mondays from folks engaging “missional.”
I have some other thoughts of my own on “missional” brewing, but I don’t have time to fully articulate them here now … So I’ll just give you my premise (in 140 characters or less):
“Missional” will replace “evangelical” as the primary adjective for “Christian” in this next era of the Church.
What do you think? Agree? Disagree? Let’s discuss … (see you in the comments)
