Missional Theology as a M.I.R.O.R….

No I didn’t misspell mirror. This is an insightful acronym from W. David Philipps on the nature of missional theology. Here is what it is…

  • missional (he sent his son),
  • incarnational (he entered into our world in the Garden, in the Old Testament, in the New Testament),
  • relational (he established a relationship with himself in the Trinity, with Adam & Eve in the Garden, etc),
  • organic (he took many forms in the Old Testament -fire, clouds, visitors, Angel of the Lord, Melchizadek- based on the context where the incarnation took place)
  • reproductive (he reproduced himself by making mankind in his own image)
  • To see how he has developed this entire series you can go here.

    Is there anything else you would add to your description of missional theology?
