Life In Community On Mission: The Glorious Mess

There is no such thing as a typical week in the rhythms of a missional community. Healthy communities follow pretty surprisingly simple patterns. And the schedules of the families are not crazy packed and insanely busy.

In this episode of the Everyday Disciple Podcast, I’ll share a running narrative from the daily journals of a married father in a missional community. You’ll get to see all of the “organized” and “organic” interactions that come up in their calendar as a family on mission for one week. Oh, it’s messy… but it’s a glorious mess!

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • How a married couple with three kids lives on mission together.
  • The gospel-intentionality that is baked into their normal life.
  • How living this way in community adds very little to their normal schedules.
  • A great picture of discipleship in action in everyday life.

From this episode:

“Did you notice that there are really only two or three interactions with the Missional Community during this week that fall outside their normal daily and weekly rhythms? I also hope you see that one of the takeaways from this family’s schedule is that everything is moving outward with regard to its activities, responsibilities, and relationships. Growth is happening as the family includes others, more and more frequently, into the mix. Treating everyone like family.
