Loving our neighbour: Audiomission Oct 2016

Loving our neighbour – instead of fearing our neighbour: that’s the headline for the lead story in the current issue of The Call, Church Mission Society’s new quarterly newspaper.

The focus is on sharing the love of Jesus in areas where faiths other than Christianity are in the majority, particularly among Muslim people. It’s an area that, in our current climate, makes many people nervous.

Yet as Tanas Alqassis points out in The Call: “We are called to share the gospel. I don’t see anything wrong with sharing faith with others. If they want to explore faith in Jesus, it’s their decision; you can’t force it. It’s the work of God.”

So this month we look at three different settings where our people are sharing faith, life, and love in North Africa and Europe. 


Angela and Chris Chorlton (recently returned from Egypt)

Our call: To encourage and equip the churches of Egypt in difficult times

“The Church in Egypt has been and still is a place of great influence within the Middle East. Our role has been to ‘be’ in this land – to be incarnational. Chris ran the Anglican Diocese Language Centre for seven years. More recently he worked as a priest at the cathedral as well as at our local church. Angela filled various roles including working in an orphanage for girls, serving in international and refugee pre-schools and being an English teacher to both children and adults.”

Anonymous partners

We also hear this month from three other mission partners, working in the UK and North Africa. Because their work could be misunderstood, we are keeping their interviews anonymous. You’ll hear how they are responding to people enquiring about Jesus, and watching in amazement as they see what God is doing. 

This month’s reflection comes from Ian Adams, mission spirituality adviser for Church Mission Society. See the resources section for more of Ian’s prayer exercises.
