Gary Nelson and Me on the future of the “Missional” Conversation

Bill and Imbi Kinnon are tireless is producing interviews and video materials promoting the missional cause. They do great work. Here they make me look good and of course being with Gary Nelson doesn’t hurt. In this video they catch Gary – pres. of Tyndale University College Toronto and important Canadian Missional author/thinker – and I chatting about the future of “missional” as a viable conversation for the future of the church. Gary engages what’s really important above all the posturing that comes with the word “missional.” It is interesting that I mention four ideas as the defining building bocks for a missional conversation: 1.) Post Christendom as the defining cultural position of the church in the West, 2.) Missio Dei, 3.) the Incarnational Logic of the church, and 4.) the idea of Witness as the primary mode of communicating the gospel in our post Christendom Context. I am about to blog about these four ideas as I have been rethinking them and the issues at stake. I must have been thinking about them back in August when we taped these interviews. Thanks to Imbi and Bill for taping these (there’s two more to come) and Gary for sitting down and chatting. I really enjoyed our time.
