Over the next few days, I’ve scheduled a series a posts relating to itinerant servants, that is, believers who travel from place to place in order to proclaim the gospel and strengthen the church. This topic is far from academic or conceptual for me, because I have a close friend who believes that God is leading him into this type of service.
In his post, Josh is responding to my post from last week “Thinking about itinerant servants and the church.” Like I’ve said before, I love it when discussions overlap different blogs. This is one of the powerful aspects of this medium.
Josh suggests two ways that traveling servants benefit the church (I’m paraphrasing):
1) The church has the opportunity to learn from someone who has different experiences, perspectives, and callings.
2) The church can learn from someone on whom they will not become overly dependent.
Read Josh’s post. It’s very good.
What do you think of the benefits that Josh lists? Can you think of others?
