(Today I’m featuring the first ever guest post on missionsmusings.com, written by Josh Heyward. You can also check out his blog or look him up on twitter. If you want to write a guest post for missionsmusings, here’s how.)
Missions. Many different things come to mind with this one word—a straw hut overseas, a spring break mission trip, inner city ministry, caring for the poor, etc. The fact of the matter is that the word “missions” means something different to each individual. Some relate very well to this term being that they are totally comfortable with being in an unfamiliar environment in order to serve other people, yet others run from the idea being that they fear being called to live in that straw hut overseas. Whatever the case, each individual’s understanding is different. I would, however like to discuss two key elements of missions to hopefully clear the muddy waters of such a diverse and crucial idea.
Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is having a fun and restful weekend, wherever you may be. 🙂
For something completely different, I’m posting a few of my old journal covers here. I hope they can be an encouragement to you, and perhaps a challenge as well. Hope you enjoy!
Welcome to the very first installment of Free Form Friday!
While I intend to keep this blog primarily focused on missions, and other topics as they intersect with it, I’ve decided to make Friday my “fun day.” My “write whatever the heck I feel like writing” day. I hope you enjoy it, and as always, feel free to leave comments on the randomness that is about to ensue. 😉
