We recently kicked off a new idea, short informal conversations with people across Ireland re-imagining mission! Two of the Praxis Team will be co-hosting the 30 minute Tuesday morning chats with a different person each time. We would love to encourage ordinary people that they are and can be missional where they are... as a mom, a teacher, a nurse, etc. So put on teh kettle and join us as we hear stories from God's Kingdom coming.

In John 17, Jesus prays that we (his people) would be one. What would it look like for ordinary people all across this island to be one as we follow Jesus into His mission? What would it look like to collaborate and work alongside one another to serve our communities?
