I came across a tremendously inspiring series of articles done up by the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada. Leaders from various denominations write about the work that they are doing to re-shape themselves to better serve the Kingdom of God. Could we learn some lessons from the Baptists, Mennonites, and Pentecostals as they find new ways to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ? You bet. Check out the articles here.
There is also a series of church profiles from Canadian churches who are trying to live missionally in their own contexts. You can check that out here.
After reading articles like these, I’m apt to think that we should consider moving away from our, dare I say, insular approach to eccumenical cooperation, and build bridges with groups like the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada. They are exploring missional renewal and we need all the help we can get.
