If you believe like I do that North America is more the mission field these days than other countries of the world, then you’ll be interested to read this interview in Reinventing SDA Wheel with urban missionaries Greg and Shasta Nelson. Their insights are profound on failure, forgiveness, faith and focused ministry to people in the cities.
Also don’t forget the Urban Ministry Congress at Oakwood College, Huntsville, Alabama, July 22-27, 2007. It’s been more than 100 years since the Adventist Church has gathered to discuss the needs of urban communities in North America. More details at www.plusline.org or dial (800) 732-7587.
