Tod Bolsinger, who is a great author, and the pastor down at San Clemente Presbyterian Church, has been doing a great series on missions, and looking at what he considers to be the three R’s: Relationship, Reflection, Reintegration. This is an important series, and I have been thinking about these things a lot as I have done many mission trips myself, and as I currently have about 20 students overseas on mission trips. What can I do as their pastor to make these trips more fulfilling? Where can I lead them, or point them to? What is my role?
Tod has done a great job at looking at these things.
