I’ve mentioned this in a previous blog or two, and I’ve had enough conversations with pastors and others who’d like a brief listing of this, that I’ve decided to make a separate post of it so it will be more readily available. I can never remember which post it was on.
There are 5 “Ls” in missional love: genuinely missional followers of Jesus and communities of faith have these 5 “Ls.”
1. They look and see needs.
2. They listen to their community and hear what people are saying about needs.
3. They learn about needs and their community by studying and researching.
4. They link to those needs as individuals and communities in order to bring the Kingdom.
5. They act locally to meet needs.
There are 5, not just one or two, “Ls” in missional love.
