WHO DO YOU HONOR?
Planting new churches is a very familiar priority among church folks. Watching them grow and mature is even more pleasant for Christian workers. However, such activity elsewhere is often not the same as here in the United States.
Recently the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) held their every five year assembly, and among other things elected a new Archbishop. As might be expected, there were visitors from all over the world, especially Africa. Among them was an Anglican priest from Nigeria.
At table during one meal break, this priest in conversation mentioned how much he would like to visit a number of Churches he helped plant. His first priority at each of them is something very surprising to folks from America.
At least one martyr was involved in each planting. He wants to honor each of these martyrs. His visits will take place shortly after his return. Contrast these churches experiences with the history of your church or mission.
