Ever heard the gospel read in Chinese?

It’s very moving. It did something within me.

As I looked around our joint house group meeting I saw nine different nationalities I thought about the Great Commission and wondered how and when we the 'church' lost the significance, the profoundness of this great missional statement.

James F Engel - famous for his scale of evangelism - talks about the "great omission" it’s got me mulling!? I’m not so certain that it represents the ecclesiastical mandate for world domination that I was led to believe.

I think I am finding depth in the statement within the diversity that Poplar is.

...But I’m not sure!
