At this November’s Missional Living of Scripture Conference at Calvin Theological Seminary, I had the opportunity to hear Christopher Wright speak on the topic “No Biblical Mission without Biblical Ethics.”
Using Genesis 18-19, Wright addressed three questions I believe are at the heart of our “big story” mission in Christian education: 1) What kind of world do we live in? 2) What has God promised to do about it? 3) What does it mean for us? These three questions provide us a means to use the “big story” of the Bible as a framework for the mission and practice of Christian education.
