If someone says "missions is about cramming Christianity down other people's throats," how would you respond? Tell us!
Recently, a facebook friend of mine who is a pastor shared a status update about his daughter attending a missionary training program before heading to Asia for a short-term missions assignment.
Most of the comments from his friends were, as you could imagine, extremely positive, optimistic, and prayerful.
However, one friend wrote this bold question:
My pastor friend eloquently offered a graciously tender-hearted reply saying that the heart of missions is sharing the message of hope of Jesus Christ, often demonstrated through mercy and service.
Here's what I added to the conversation:
Ok, so what about you? What would you say? Let's collect some responses. Please leave your replies here...
