Fresh Expressions of Church among the Maasai?

Posted by on Aug 31, 2009 in Fresh Expressions Stories | 4 Comments

Vincent Donovan was a Catholic missionary to the Maasai in Tanzania in the 1960’s and 1970’s. His book Christianity Rediscovered (Orbis 1978) has been a best-seller ever since, and I am not the only teacher who has used it in classes on mission and evangelism to help students think through issues of Gospel and culture.

A Fresh Expression of Amnesia

Posted by on Jun 16, 2009 in Fresh Expressions Stories | No Comments

If we are to become a church shaped by and for God’s mission in this world, the last thing we need is a fresh expression of amnesia. 233 variations of the word “remember” appear in Old and New Testaments. As poet and philosopher George Santayana has it, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

IKEA, Sunday Mornings, and the Telling of Tales

Posted by on Mar 31, 2009 in Fresh Expressions Stories | 2 Comments

After visiting the IKEA in North York a few weeks ago, I had to ask, “What does IKEA have that we—the church—don’t have?” This question is at once tongue-in-cheek and a sober one. On the tongue-in-cheek end of things, they’ve obviously got more comfortable seats, a great deal of marketing geniuses (have you seen their commercials?!) and a multi-million dollar advertising budget! On the sober end of things, IKEA, as a culture, presents and represents a challenge to the church.

Posted by on Mar 1, 2009 in Fresh Expressions Stories | No Comments

Sitting on the edge of the stage, his feet shod in bright white running shoes, the Rev. Paul Bayes doesn’t seem like a man on a mission. He patiently answers questions from the crowd, injecting some much needed humour whenever possible…

Primate's Endorsement of Fresh Expressions Canada

Posted by on Jan 30, 2009 in Fresh Expressions Stories | No Comments

I am pleased to endorse “Fresh Expressions Canada”. It is an initiative in keeping with our Church’s vision of “growing in membership, faith and service in God’s world”.

It is a creative style of evangelism, drawing people into a relationship with Jesus Christ. It will speak to many who are looking for a fresh expression of our life together in Christ. It represents an imaginative approach to strengthening the witness of a local Christian community.

I encourage you to learn more about this initiative by exploring the newly formed website.

But is it Church…?
