Missional Living

An interesting post about missional living popped up here.

The author argues for authentic relationships with the people in our various networks as the basis for missional living. I thought the description of these networks, quoted from an audio of Tim Keller, were particular interesting.

Keller suggests that the biblical term oikos [household] applies to at least five networks: your kinship network (family and relatives), your neighborhood (those who live near you geographically), your colleagues (co-workers or co-students), your affinity network (people with a shared special interest), and your friends (those from the other 4 networks whom you develop a close relationship with).
