This is a Christian Thought and Culture Lecture. Where is Christian mission thriving today? Is there hope for the church in the West in light of the power of modernity, post-modernity and post-post-modernity? Signs of the rediscovery of the missional nature of the triune God and the consequent reformation (semper reformanda) of His church to recover its 'mission-shaped' ethos, are encouraging. How do we contextualize the church to be missionally effective without violating our historic doctrinal and communal roots? We will offer a vision for ecclesial, contextualized yet not compromised, missional yet deep church-based, incarnational an pneumatological, holistic Christian mission to humanity and creation. Pre-lecture reading: Walker, Andrew and Bretherton, Luke (eds.) Remembering Our Future: Explorations in Deep Church (London/Colorado Springs/Hyderabad: Paternoster, 2007), introduction, chapter 1.
