The Mission attitude

The Mission attitude identifies with people who are trapped by self-destructive habits or oppressive contexts from which there seems no escape. To be “mission minded” is to experience a “heartburst” of compassion for those who are broken and yearning for healing, those who are lost and yearning for guidance, those who are anxious and yearning for assurance, those who are lonely and yearning for meaningful intimacy, and those who are victims and yearning for justice.
