Skye Jethani of Christianity Today got to interview Rob Bell again recently. I’ve always shared some affinity for Rob, both in our shared Fuller heritage and in the way that he loves to re-frame thoughts and notions that we’ve become desensitized to in ways that challenge us and stir us up again.
Here’s a great quote from the interview, which pertains particularly to our church’s current Mustard Seeds series:
Stop using the word ‘missionary’ and stop sending people out to the ‘mission field.’ Or keep the word, but also commission public school teachers, and dentists, and CPA’s, and construction workers, and those people who take your money at the toll booth. We’re all disciples, all ground is holy, every interaction and conversation is loaded with divine potential, anytime, anywhere. Ordain everyone, call everyone a minister, invite the whole church to be on staff.
