Vol. 3 No. 1 (2022)
Ecclesial Futures 3.1 brings together some critical questions in missional ecclesiology addressed by a diverse set of authors from Britain and Europe. I hope this won’t always be the case, but it is interesting to have a group of articles addressing questions of ecclesial futures in the western world, all gathered in one place. There are significant overlaps and interactions between the articles as they are presented in the issue; use of the metaphor ‘pioneer’; how disciples are formed and grow into leadership; the forces ranged against such personal and communal maturation in discipleship; the importance in all this of embodied spiritual practices (and therefore neurotheological insights into the how the right hemisphere of the brain can help us) which all adds up to a very different understanding of ‘salvation’ from that which we inherited from our immediate forbears.
