BLOG POSTS that relate to this chapter:
For those who are keen on travel being mission-centred, I’ve written a 5 part series of posts here, of which many have been reading and responding to recently. I warn you, they go slightly deeper than most, and may take a few minutes to read, particularly when you see the Venn diagram!
Travel in the New Testament (some of the loose thoughts that the book derived from):
- Wise men travel
- Christ on the road
- The road gets packed: 72 on their way
- Roman roads: good news to the world
- Community, glory and travelling (from Ephesians)
- Longing to be with you: travelling to support
- Journeying to life: the Christian metaphor
Tangential thoughts somewhat related to the chapter:
I mention “Identification, Persuasion and Invitation” in the chapter, and here are some resources that further expand on that. Well worth listening to over the next while – these principles have shaped me enormously in life.
Feedback from readers on the chapter:
Amidst many positive things that you’ve said, your questions mean I must admit that I haven’t been to Vanuatu. Nor a few other places in the book (I tell stories of the friends I mention). Perhaps editing may make it seem like I was in all these places, but for the sake of clarity, I should say this now – not that it affects anything in the book! This chapter originally started with a story of my sister and her husband (from Vanuatu) but was later removed to make the chapter more digestible.
