Reframation: Four Important Questions (and Answers) For YOUR Ministry Context

Written by

We live in a world that is constantly on a pilgrimage, searching and longing for so much more. 

Yet, followers of Jesus struggle to articulate the story of God in a way that brings clarity and understanding to these longings, this world, and our place within it. This inability to recognize and respond aptly is what Walter Brueggemann refers to as a “crisis of interpretation,” a crisis that results in followers of Jesus being robbed of the capacity to speak, to care, and to notice those in the Nevada desert, on a trail in rural Spain, or anywhere in between.

There is a great need for a reframation that allows us to see God, people, and mission through re/enchanted frames. We want to seriously consider how it is that we tell and live the story of God in the midst of this pervading “crisis of interpretation.”

In this latest resource from Missio Alliance, you will 

See the “reduction” that is cultural Christianity and how it impacts how we see God

Learn the concept of re/enchanting, and how it helps us see differently, tell a better story and live a more beautiful life, especially as ministry leaders

Discover how ministry leaders use all this to re/learn disciplines and practices that will help us to better perceive and understand the keys to culture
