as Laussanne prepared for a massive gathering in South Africa last month, Carson Pue, the president of Arrow, wrote an interesting little article about it. He said that he thought there was a message that the Canadian and American leaders needed to hear.
The essence of the message is this: discipleship in other parts of the world are outdoing us in commitment, effort, sacrifice and effectiveness in sharing Christ with the lost. They look at us and see our significant human and financial resources being used to reach the ‘once churched’ and to feed the voracious appetite of Christians for conferences, books and tools that seldom get put into use for the cause of winning the lost to Jesus. The world wants us to pick up our game, starting in our own neighborhoods.
I thought it was pretty interesting. I look forward to hearing how the conference went and how this message came through.
