The Day After Tomorrow, It’s Not the End of the World
For years people have been predicting the end of the world in 2012. This is the year the ancient Mayan Calendar ends, but for many other reasons it has come to be seen as the year of the apocalypse. Christians, too, have joined the clamour, proclaiming various dates for the world’s end. Even those who don’t have a specific date in mind for Christ’s return live, in a many ways, as if it is imminent. The one thing we lack as a church, it seems, is a long-term plan.
But what if it isn’t the end of the world? What if we all survive beyond this year and must plough on for decades more, facing up to the problems and pressures of our world and coming to terms with the disasters we have created? What would you want the church, above all else, to do? What priorities of God’s mission would you address? What kind of church do you dream of for the day after tomorrow?
We’ve asked 12 creative and innovative leaders to answer this question, and we’ve given them each 12 minutes to share their answers with you.
Blesstalks will give you the opportunity to hear from some of the most significant thinkers in the UK church, and to discuss their conclusions with them. Each 12 minute talk will be followed by time for questions.
What will you be doing, the day after tomorrow?
