Cape Town 2010 has been an inspiring Congress to be at, over 4,000 church leaders from 198 countries meeting together for worship, prayer, teaching, and dialogue. There’s been a wide range of topics such as other world faiths, poverty, HIV/AIDS, persecution, among others – as they relate to the future of the Church and world evangelization.
One of my frustration was that we had a fantastic preach from Tim Keller on reaching cities, we’ve heard a number of aspects about rural communities – especially in relation to using oral story as a level before formal bible translation, but we’ve heard nothing on ministry in suburbia.
In the UK suburbia is full of apathy and confusion. People often go to school or work outside of the community they live in, they rarely know even just the names of their neighbours, and in the midst of this we have the local church.
I’d like to explore what a theology of suburbia would look like, and how does this affect the individual ministries within a church. Any thoughts anyone?
