The other day a friend asked me what my “philosophy of ministry” was. My answer was simple: put it on the calendar.
You can go on and on about theology and philosophy and systems and blah-blah-blah. The fact is that what you really value is pretty easy to measure. Just look at how people spend their time and money.
We make time for the things that matter. For the missionary, this will mean having three interwoven calendars: Sacramental, Missional and Organizational. These three elements will create a new “liturgical year” for your church community.
