Part One In The Series "Is The Gospel Losing It's Power To Change Lives?" I have never spoken on this theme specifically ever - not in the church I serve nor anywhere else. But there’s an issue that’s been haunting me lately. Let me explain. I would never presume to offer any advice on missionary work. You all would know far more than I about what makes for effective missional endeavor (to use the most over-worked word on planet earth today). So I have nothing to bring to the table on that front.
