church mission

Len at NextReformation brings us this great quote in Transforming Mission by David Bosch which summarizes the church on mission.
A community of people who, in the face of the tribulations they encounter, keep their eyes steadfastly on the reign of God by praying for its coming, by being its disciples, by proclaiming its presence, by working for peace and justice in the midst of hatred and oppression, and by looking and working toward God’s liberating future.

I like that - keep our eyes steadfastly on the reign of God. That's good enough to be in the Bible.
