Shifting the Church into the Future Tense
Blah... is back with a new series for 2004!
We are delighted to welcome Tom and Christine Sine who will be helping us take a look at global, national, and local trends that are likely to challenge the church in the Third Millennium. They will also be sharing stories from the edge of the postmodern church in the UK, OZ, NZ and North America.
Tom and Christine are wonderful! They have encouraged mission, imagination and creativity amongst younger leaders all round the world. They have helped many to reconnect with a biblical vision of the kingdom as an alternative to the Western consumer dream. They haven’t been afraid to speak out prophetically about the church’s capitulation to consumption. They have written lots of books – The Mustard Seed Conspiracy, Wild Hope and Mustard Seed vs McWorld are probably the best known (in the UK anyway)– and have gleaned lots of wisdom from their travels and their experience. This is a great chance to catch up with their thinking.
This will be the first of a series of conversations hosted by CMS in 2004 on mission, worship, church and Christianity in today’s rapidly changing culture. The timing of this couldn’t have worked out much better with the buzz around the Anglican report on fresh expressions of church at the moment. It’s a time to keep listening, chatting and reflecting as God beckons us into the future.
