Mission and Method (Acts 15:36 – 21:16)
With only a map and a vision, Paul sets out to spread the word among the Gentiles. The success of his first mission (in last week’s passage) would suggest fairly smooth sailing as he turns his focus to more metropolitan European cities. But this ride often gets bumpy and rivalries in ministry begin to surface. This week’s outing gives us a candid and sometimes unsettling account of what missionary work requires. This week we sail the high seas as we continue our “Disorganized Religion” tour at 7:30 in the Chapel.
