I love words, but they have a major limitation:
The same word often means different things to different people.
This is even true when you and I talk with each other about disciple making movements.
Here are a few words and phrases that may surprisingly confuse our conversation:
- Disciple Making
- Disciple Making Movement
- Discovery Bible Study
- Person of Peace
Not talking the same language makes communication difficult, but not even knowing that we are not talking the same language makes it almost impossible!
So the question is this: how do we more effectively communicate with one another and cast vision to others for the rapid spread of and obedience to the Gospel?
One answer is to tell more stories – to use more descriptions and rely on fewer definitions. That will be my goal over the next few weeks as I try to describe what I mean by urban disciple making movements.
- What stories best communicate your vision for urban disciple making movements?
- How can you use stories to better collaborate with other disciple makers?
