More Like the Kingdom

Recently, we’ve taken some time to consider the topic of identity and how it can be affected by many things such as stereotypes as covered in our interview with Mission ONE Theologian-in-Residence, Jackson Wu.

As we get ready to close out another year, we want to spend some time taking a look at the different ways Advent is celebrated around the world. It’s an important time of celebration and joy that directs our hearts and minds to the anniversary of our Lord’s birth. The word Advent derives from the…

By Jackie Parks, Coordinator of Strategic Projects: North Africa & the Middle East This Holy Week is unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before.
