This month, a Global Conversation kicks off from www.lausanne.org/conversation. What would be worth a year-long Global Conversation involving a series of articles in dozens of publications worldwide? What would we need to discuss across the world, that we couldn't just talk about in our cozy conferences locally?
The whole gospel of God, given to the whole church to speak and live in the whole world.
Read the first article, in which Chris Wright raises the question of whether evangelicals really use the whole Bible in the mission God has given us - Whole Gospel, Whole Church, Whole World. The conversation has started - have a read, and do join in in the comments and in your churches, constructively engaging with these topics to build up Christ's Church.
I would appeal to you personally to note that as this is a global conversation, writers and commentators come from a great variety of backgrounds, so please give special consideration to understanding and communicating well, rather than assuming the worst or using local humour.
