Karen Stiller (with Willard Metzger) has written a great new book called Going Missional: Conversations with 13 Canadian Churches Who Have Embraced Missional Life
. I haven’t read the entire book yet, but it looks good so far. It’s refreshing to see a book like this written from a Canadian perspective.
I love this passage near the end of the book:
What I heard, over and over again in the interviews I did for this book (and there were 46 of them) was that the teaching and preaching that leads to a church slowly, painfully, awkwardly, turning itself inside out to face the world once again takes time – and it costs. Churches, especially well-established ones who have had a longer time to grow comfortable and cut-off, do not become missional overnight. But, all across Canada, it is happening.
