It’s Easter Week and I’m deep into preparing services and activities while at the same time trying to get over a cold so I can sing and shout out my “He is Risen! He is Risen, Indeed!” on Easter morning. This week I’m posting ideas on having a missional Easter that I’ve gleaned from sources around this great world wide web of that is the missional field.

From Roland Khul at iMissional.org:

What makes us missional?

I contend that it is not having a missional attitude or perspective, nor reading missional books, nor holding to a missional theology, nor having a missional agenda, nor being a speaker on the missional circuit. Being missional is an act of the Spirit that comes through our being reoriented in all of our life through participating with Jesus Christ in his resurrection from the dead.

Being missional is not our activity, but the activity of the Spirit in us, the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead (cf. Romans 8:11)…

Being missional, becoming missional is what God does in us – as we participate in Christ’s life, crucifixion, death, and resurrection. We become participators in what God is doing in the world, participating with God in God’s mission as a community being sign, foretaste, and instrument of God’s present and coming reign, not by our own efforts, but through the action of the Spirit.
