God's People for God's World

A Practical Approach to Partnership in Mission
  • By Robert S. Heaney
  • By John Kafwanka
- For all interested in the future of mission in the Anglican Communion - Authors and perspectives encompass the breadth of the world-wide Anglican Church In an era where partnership and communion seem to be under threat, this book re-imagines mis-sion partnership in a diverse and pluralist world. The theme of the Lambeth Conference 2020 is "God's Church for God's World," and this vol-ume serves as a theological resource for the conference and for those interested in the future of the Anglican Communion. Building on the work of the Center for Anglican Communion Studies (VTS) and the Mission Department of the Anglican Communion Office, the book identifies and addresses key theological, cultural, and practical issues that need to be addressed for mission partnerships to thrive. Key among these issues is listening: listening to one another is a profound challenge given socio-economic differences, power differentials, and linguistic divides. Drawing from mission experience, the authors offer best practices for discipleship as listening. Written across cultural differences, the authors hail from Zambia, the United Kingdom, Haiti, India, Latin America, Native American, South Africa, Turkey, the United States, and Lebanon. Each chapter invites readers to explore issues in their context through hearing scripture, hearing each other, and hearing the Spirit.
