Pure Mission Minds - Knowing why

Haven't had very much time to blog just recently but heres some quotes from a post on Mission Dei from Andrew Jones..heres the post Also Im in the office just now so Im blogging from the blogger site, man its sucks...well its just more difficult, shows how used I am to ecto, definatly recommended! Anyway as I was saying, some quotes that really focussed my mission mindedness today: "the Missio Dei or mission of God. The concept is that mission is not a program of the church but rather an attribute of God. Mission comes first from the heart of God and we are caught up in it rather than initiating it. Mission is primarily the work of God and we participate with God in what He is doing.....Missio Dei sees our mission as stemming from the Triune God: The Father sends the Son, the Father and the Son send the Spirit The Father and and Son and the Spirit send the church. into the world. As the Father sent me, so I send you. (Jesus) Our Christology influences our missiology which influences our ecclesiology."
