I’m starting to teach the Book of Daniel in September and it strikes me that it is a very missional story. Daniel and his friends are living in a foreign country, learning to live in the tension of being a blessing to God and being a blessing to Babylon. The first few chapters are about this struggle – the city wants to change their identity, teach them their ways and eventually denounced their God.
I’m looking at how I can lead my people to fully live out the missional call that Daniel and his friends were living out. What can be done to bring people who are not on mission in line with the mission? How can I lead people to help them serve Jesus’ mission in our culture through our church?
