Pondering “missional”

/ 18 January 2007

Those of you who have spent any time at Luther in recent years will be aware that we talk almost incessantly about preparing leaders for missional churches, about missional leadership, about the “confessional/missional” dialectic, and so on and on. Here’s an interesting post musing on what “missional” might mean, courtesy of Fernando’sDesk. Fernando suggests that “missional” is “set to be the buzz word of the year” in church circles. I’m not quite sure how I feel about that! And I’m even less sure about how well we, as a large institution, manage to reach our goals. Still, I AM sure that it’s worth pondering what we mean by “missional.”
