God with us: the ministry of presence


Mission is best founded on being rather than just “doing” or “saying”. For who we are in mission either opens doors or closes them. Jesus’ incarnation (presence with us in a form we could understand) preceded, undergirded and made real his words and final redemptive works. As John 1:14 puts it, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” Mat and Shannon reflect on the ministry of presence from their context of living in a community on the fringe of the NT’s Tanami desert and challenges us to consider how this principle applies wherever we are located.
