About 45 people were part of Radstock's Round Table in Derby, UK, last month.
Delegates came from Albania, Iceland, Ireland, Mongolia, Kosovo, Ukraine, the UK, and USA, sharing updates on their local mission contexts. Our few days together were a beautiful picture of the unity in diversity of the Kingdom of God and the fullness of his grace.
It was a time of encouragement and sharing of ideas. Panel discussions explored questions of pioneering new mission opportunities and building church planting teams. We heard stirring exposition of the word on topics such as God's call on the church to love the lost, God's grace reaching even the most out-of-the-way places, and the necessity of our hope being grounded in the very best thing - the good news of Jesus Christ!
Our host church Urban Life, as well as other local experts, shared insights on how to respectfully love and bless our Muslim neighbors in an urbanized Western context. And Derby itself provided practical observation! Urban Life is a radical, progressive but grounded ministry sowing in a field where there seems to be more path, rocky ground and weeds than good soil. Please pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send workers! Does your church have an interest in reaching Europe in all its diversity? If so, please get in touch with Anthony. Urban Life is open to short term teams and long term workers joining them.
Our next Radstock Round Table will be in the DC area from 25-26 February 2016. Plan to arrive Wednesday evening for a 9am start on Thursday. There will be an option for a sightseeing day on Saturday, 27 Feb. We expect to have church planters from half a dozen countries in the Radstock network there; you don't want to miss it. Save the date!
