The churches goal again

I’m just on the last few pages of John R. Franke’s, The Character of Theology. I’ll write a short review sometime soon, but seeing as I asked a question about defining the churches goal, I thought I’d relay Franke’s answer:

Simply stated, the mission of the church is to be the image of God and to carry on the mission of God in the world (p. 174)

The new single of the week on the sidebar is the classic, State of Independence by the lusciously voiced Donna Summer.

But here is the question, of what does the 'mission of God' consist of? and what part does he expect us to play?

I like to think that 2 Cor 5:20 is relavant to that question.
How are your 'relating to Jesus' thoughts coming on?

Im taking a break from any academic brain stimulation right now (although semester started this week, bad timing!) to work on some personal issues...

prayers would be appreciated, and I'll get back to the topic at a later date.

I think the thing about my comment was, that many might agree that the goal of the church is the mission of God, but that not everyone means the same thing by that in terms of what that mission is.

You have my prayers eddie. And I think I understand the point you were making now, thanks for the clarification.
