The Untaming

Learning to build missional community in secular France

Three years into the missional community


It seems a long time ago since we decided to move from a home group to a missional community.   May 2010.  It is now September 2013, so we’ve been on this journey for three and a half years now.  I blogged about what we had learned after six months and again after just over a year, and then the blog petered out somewhat, with not much content since 2011.  Oops.

The reason for this was really a sense that we had no idea what we were doing – so why would anyone want to read about us?  In the language of the 3DM Lifeshape Square, I was probably in the “D2” phase of disillusionment and discouragement.  With a bit of distance now I see more of the journey we’ve been on, so hope to pick up the blog a bit now and bring you up to speed on the ups and downs we’ve experienced.

I hope these reflections of a ‘rank amateur’ will be useful to anyone actually trying to start, and lead a missional community.

  1. I can guarantee you there will be at least one grateful blog reader finding your reflections useful. But I’m confident that there will be more than just one of us…

  2. with at least one supportive reader on the other side of the channel
