Mission: Right Here

Brad M. Griffin | Feb 9, 2010

How many times have you—like me—been in the van on the way back from a mission trip and said, felt, or heard from someone else, “We’ve got to do something more at home like this?” Many of us know the importance of connecting work away from home with missional living in our communities, but we aren’t sure how to bridge the gap.

A few posts last week from YouthWorks’ Eric Iverson point toward that connection. Today check out this Deep Justice Story about a youth group who never came back to do another YouthWorks trip. Why? Because they went home and developed Imagine Ministries.

How have you helped connect the dots in tangible ways between mission “out there” and missional living “right here”?
