Food For Thought: Evangelism and Community Edition

Every week here at Pursuing Glory I try to bring together the best posts I’ve found that will equip the end-times church to operate in her God-ordained destiny.  These are the best blogs, articles, books and other resources related to our purpose here at this site.  Feel free to visit, comment, and make use of the resources found at each site.From Institution to Communitas

Over the past several months we’ve seen our house church change from a community of Christ following families into something a little more bent on discipling the nations.  The implications have been messy but well worth the change.  Interestingly enough, a lot of the thought provoking articles from this week are around those very same topics.  And now, on with the links.

Love Others Bob at Logan Leadership writes about what it means to be a movement that loves others.  Bob’s insights are short and profound, but they can be summed up with one of the mantras I’m always sharing with believers in my life: “History is defined by those who show up.”

Should We Increase Community at the Expense of Being Missional? Felicity at SimplyChurch has been tackling the very real issue of community development vs. mission that so many house churches find themselves in.

From Institution to Communitas Ross at theJesusVirus takes a stab at the community vs. mission question with this post, drawing on insights from the phenomenal book, The Forgotten Ways.  This post shows the progression of  a church from an institution to a family to an army and is a needed concept among organic churches everywhere.

Confessions of the World’s Worst Evangelist Steve at Movements.net writes about how the Lord has changed him from the world’s worst evangelist to a worker in the harvest.
