3MMM | Episode 9: Ministry as Relational
Church is one of the few remaining kinds of social groups in a postmodern society where people can still be a vital part of a community across time. At their best churches offer genuine opportunities to see each other at all life stages, interact across generations, and walk together through all the seasons from birth through death with all the milestones and rites of passage in between.
Of course at their worst, churches can also do harm, fail to show up for each other in authentic ways, lose their purpose and perpetuate all the ills of the human condition. This week’s 3MMM story about Trong, a study participant in the Learning Pastoral Imagination Project, and his first mentor Tam, shows how faith communities can both exclude and inspire their members.
