Now that we're launched our new website we are going to be posting the latest content from our bi-monthly publication, Intermission, within two weeks of sending it out. That means you'll be able to choose whether to receive it in the post, or whether you want to access it online.
Editorial. We evangelicals have an interesting history. Champions like John Wesley and William Wilberforce strongly believed in the importance of personal salvation, yet they also recognized that the gospel must actually transform society. For a long time we’ve played the either-or game with evangelism and social action. Unfortunately, the Bible doesn’t dichotomise these two – and it’s time we learn to hold them together.
For some of us this will mean a paradigm shift in how we understand mission. But it’s something we must wrestle with as we move further into the 21st century, especially as we consider our missional role in the South Pacific.
This was originally published in Intermission (September-October 2014). The rest of the articles will be posted to the website over the next two weeks.
