Missional Field Notes

Quotes, Examples, and Ideas from My Missional Frontier

God desires for us to connect the blessing of God to the rest of the world. As Reggie McNeal points out in his book Missional Renaissance the church is to be like an airport terminal.

Airport terminals are not destinations. No one stays in an airport overnight, if they can help it. The seats are hard, the lights don’t go off, and the Public Service Announcements keep repeating. The reason for this is that this is not what airports were designed for. Airports are not vacation destinations. They connect us to the destination. The church is not designed to simply be the destination of God’s blessing but to connect God’s blessing to the rest of the world.
