End Notes

Gary Corwin
T he joint IFMA/EFMA/EMS Triennial Conference, held in Virginia Beach, Virginia, in September 1999, is the source for the articles and responses included in this volume. The authors represented are as varied and unique as the subjects upon which they write. Their contributions, however, coalesce around a challenging and highly important subject, though, as with any collection of conference articles, the reader should be reminded that the authors bring their own perspectives, styles of communication, and points of view.
The theme of that conference was “Working Together to Shape the New Millennium,” a challenging task revolving around an incredibly ambitious purpose. While the theme served well to communicate the focus and aspirations of that Conference, it left some of us uneasy. This was primarily for two reasons. First, it seemed a bit presumptuous to suggest that a few hundred mission agency leaders and mission professors had it within their grasp to shape anything so grand as a new millennium. That was a problem with the question of “Who?”
The second reason/problem had to do with the question of “What?” Were we really there to shape a new millennium, with all the political, economic, social, moral, and religious images which that thought conjures up? Or was our purpose somewhat less grandiose, if no less noble-namely, to explore how to work more closely together with one another and others in this new millennium, so that we could work more closely with God in accomplishing all that He has in mind.
I have since reconciled my own concerns over these matters in the process of preparing this book for publication. The question of Who? and What? are both solved by malting explicit in the book’s title what is either explicit or implicit in all the articles which it contains. Namely, that it is God who does the work, and that we are privileged to be co-laborers together with Him in all that He is doing. Furthermore, as co-laborers with Him, we are of necessity also co-laborers with all others who belong to Him. Many of our articles focus explicitly on the opportunities and limitations related to that glorious fact.
The volume is organized into six sections, containing fourteen chapters (two of which also include responses), in addition to the preface and epilogue written by the editors:
(1) Biblical Foundations for the New Millennium describes both the ways and the means that God is already using to shape the new millennium, and what it takes to partner with Him;
(2) The Context of the New Millennium makes plain both the worldview and the global theological challenges which must be faced;
(3) Working Together Theologically explores the opportunities and limitations that evangelicals must consider in working together with others who are identified with the Conciliar Movement, Orthodox Churches, or the Roman Catholic Church;
(4) Working Together Doxologically highlights the centrality of worship to the missions enterprise, and the role of artists in enhancing it;
(5) Working Together Strategically provides both practical models and striking examples of how effective mission can be carried forward; and
(6) Leadership Needed for the New Millennium points the way forward in a heart-warming fashion for developing and mentoring the new generations of leaders that the task requires.
While the work of each author has undergone revision to achieve more of a print style than an oral one, the editors have endeavored to maintain the passion, perspectives and content of each one.
Shaping a new millennium is no mean task. In fact, it’s not even a human one; though God for his own reasons, and out of His grace, invites us to join with Him in it. And working together is not always easy, even when we like each other. But this is the grand and glorious endeavor to which we are called, and we can take heart in knowing that even what is impossible with man, is possible with God.
