Ministry Today

On Monday, I attended a conference about doing ministry in a postmodern world.  To say that we no longer live in a world where Christian values and morals are generally embraced would be an understatement.  How do we reach out to a world that objects to our claim that Jesus is the only way to God?  The answer that was suggested is simply to do what Jesus told us to do in Matthew 5:16 – “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”  How do we let our light shine?  By doing good works – helping and caring for people.  Jesus calls us to love people.  And it is that love of Jesus that will attract people to consider the message of Jesus.  We need to get out of our “holy huddles” and reach out with love into our communities.

To think further about this, I invite you to check out a couple of posts from one of the presenters – here and here.  To listen to the three presentations from the conference, click here.
