Crying in the Wilderness

The 2018 joint Fellowship of Word and Spirit/Church Society conference was on the theme of Crying in the Wilderness: Post-Christendom mission

The talks from the main sessions of this year’s FWS/CS conference are now available to listen to online.

These three talks explore the missio dei, God’s mission in the world. Dave Walker’s session introduced the missio dei, showing us how to see our place in the restoration of the created order from God’s perspective and for his glory. Jason Ward helped us to contextualise that mission with a careful analysis of contemporary culture. Finally, Geoffrey Firth reminded us that the church is God’s chosen vehicle for accomplishing his mission. Throughout we were reminded of the sovereignty of God, the power of story, and the grace by which God includes us in his mission work today.

Ros Clarke is the Associate Director of Church Society
