wikipedia says a mission is a “specific task, often religious, which a person or group has been charged with or adopts as their main purpose.”
main purpose…are we being hypocritical? are we misunderstanding what it is to have a main purpose? are we expecting people to quit what they are doing so that they can then be ‘missional’? (as if they were different things) are we telling people that where they spend the majority of their time (work) is not relevant to their mission? what if being missional was something you did where ever you are, whatever you are doing?
if it’s my purpose for living I want it to be in every aspect of my life. why try to separate mission from taking a shower, reading a book, going to work or a restaurant or church? mission happens where you are.
