Jeff- After reading both your comments and Jan's reflections about a country club mentality in her blog post, I see that I'm pushing back on the idea that evangelism is an intellectual assent to a list of propositions. I'm assuming that mission is central to our new community of faith in St Pete. I agree with all of your comments. I especially like your quote: "The receiving of salvation and the call to mission are not to be conceived sequentially, as if one followed the other." This idea has been central to my thinking as we begin this new congregation here. I also like your sermon theme on Matthew 5. Your comments have got me thinking about a revised definition of "...invitation into a MISSIONAL community of faith." Our Peace Pilgrimage also models what I hope our new faith community will look like as we mature--being the church out in the world, literally, daily, walking and working in the community and in the world. Thanks, Bobby and Jeff, for your affirmation and comments.
