Yes to Mission Spirituality
Date added: 17/08/2016
This article by Jonny Baker, 'Yes to Mission Spirituality', was first published in the International Review of Mission in November 2015.
This contribution explores mission spirituality in Evangelii Gaudium, Together towards Life, and theCape Town Commitment. The joining together of mission and spirituality is found to be an energizing and hopeful move especially in its refusal to be reduced to the private sphere and fueling of a life that participates in creation's healing. Passion is suggested as a way of reflecting theologically on a spirituality of self-giving love that stops spirituality turning inward. The unifying vision of the new creation and the contemplative posture toward culture are both welcomed wholeheartedly but have implications and call for a radical imagination about the practice of mission spirituality.
