“Are you a straw in a bundle of straws or a ripple in a pond?”
This selection of thirty short excerpts from the letters, diaries, and writings of outstanding missionaries and leaders is meant to be read one at a time. “Readers are expected to linger over each quotation, perhaps reading only one quotation a day, and to spend time afterward in prayer, reflecting on them in light of their own experiences,” explains the author, a veteran Christian worker in China.
This issue of Pray for China largely focuses on the growing need to adapt traditional ministry to the demands of an increasingly digital world. Christian Communications Ltd. (CCL), the group responsible for Pray for China, offer their perspective on why working to embrace technological trends is not only a way to meet the needs for pastoral care, but also a way to reach out to a generation that expects information to be available on a digital platform.
