GC3The 'ripples' of historical mission work are still moving out by the Spirit of God. Current partnerships are also growing and being shaped between New Zealand churches and the majority world. It is crucial to nurture an attitude of equality when we consider our non-New Zealand brothers and sisters. We share in the same Grace of God and have equal footing before Him.
Equality in the Kingdom sense means less about size and resources, and more about attitudes, values and status. It can be easy for subtle attitudes to creep in unnoticed. Perhaps now is a good time to examine ourselves, our mission teams and our churches. Is there still a paternalistic ' avour' to our partnership(s)? Do we trust the ability of national workers? What are we
learning from them?
