Mission Intro Session

This week we had the opportunity to share with a a Pilgrim Learning Community class on the topic of mission. It was an introductory session briefly covering some of the development of missiology, and in particular where we find ourselves in our thinking and action on mission in the last 20 years or so.  Pilgrim offer the class as part of their course “Talking Faith: An Introduction to theology in the Uniting Church in Australia”.

Background text is Daniel Migliori’s Faith Seeking Understanding, and I also drew on David Bosch Transforming Mission together with a range of UCA documents for more.

The basic framework we used is to point to three questions of mission:

  • Who is God?
  • What is God up to in our world (and our neighbourhood?)?
  • How can we join in?

Here’s the prezi we used to help navigate around the topic:

Thanks to Pilgrim and the class for their gracious welcome.
