Some "How To on Mission" Articles
If you don't know about the GBGM "New World Outlook" magazine you may want to give a peek at http://gbgm-umc.org/nwo/nwo-new/archived_nwo.cfm?issue=135. This issue offers some "how to" advice. It's most specifically for United Methodist churches though others may find some helpful hints as well. I also found some of the theology helpful as too often that's a missing element with mission activity & action. One critique I have with this issue is that it's a little heavy on selling the various GBGM agency initiatives. I wish they would have spent a little more time on the action of mission in a local congregation. Yet, as you read through this you can piece that together. Certainly an article or two ought to inspire the Christian or the Church to greater witness for Christ in meeting the needs of the world through mission activities.
