dc.description.abstractThis project explores a process for cultivating a community’s missional imagination, using an adaptation of the Circle of Faith-in-Action by Jerry Windley-Daoust and Lorraine Kilmartin.1 God chooses to use us as part of the divine mission to restore the world to what it was created to be. Local community leaders who meet regularly to discern what God is already doing in their community and world can find creative and faithful ways of participating in God’s redemptive mission. Moving repeatedly through the Circle of Faith-in-Action can help leaders develop greater Awareness of the people and situations around them, do practical and theological Analysis of what is happening, and respond through Action that not only meets short-term needs but addresses long-term development of health and flourishing in their communities. By the work of the Holy Spirit, their actions result in a new situation that bears developing new awareness and analysis, leading to further action for the sake of God’s reign. The Circle of Faith-in-Action becomes an upward spiral. As people are seized by the power of the gospel, they discover imaginative ways to engage with the reign of God which is already renewing our broken world, through Jesus Christ. They develop the ability to see the world not only as it is but as God is shaping it to become.en_US
