Recent events have reminded us that as we proclaim the gospel, we continually encounter the unexpected and are called into places of vulnerability. At our best, we meet these challenges with fortitude, steadfastness, and resilience. What practical strategies can we share to form communities in those virtues? How do we teach and shape Christians to proclaim Christ’s good news amid the challenges of the unexpected and the pain of the world’s brokenness? As we engage the present and look to the future, how do we form communities of courage and hope?

MISSION REFLECTION QUESTIONS
- Ministry in the Mission Field is highly contextual …. Sometimes even hypercontextual! What are some ways you can “show up” for your communities both inside and outside the congregation (chaplaincy, worshipping community, etc.)?
- How can offering yourself from a posture of vulnerability and humility open up a path for transformational change?
- How do you incorporate all generations into your worship?
- What story does your worship space hold? How does your worship space speak to your views on children in worship?
- What ideas or concers do you have around welcoming young children into your worship space?
- What does it mean to engage in double translation without throwing away the baby with the bathwater?
- What are we willing to sacrifice? Are there examples of such double translation in you working contexts?
