Tall Skinny Kiwi: Get Ready for Lausanne World Congress
For the last couple of months I’ve been keeping an eye on the Lausanne Conversation, but there has been very little about it in the South African blogosphere. Perhaps a prophet is not without honour, except in his own country. Here’s what a New Zealander living in Europe has to say about it Tall Skinny Kiwi: Get Ready for Lausanne World Congress:
The global mission event of the century is only a week away! Its the Third Lausanne World Congress on World Evangelization also known as Lausanne 3.
We’re talking 5000 invited delegates from all over the world.
Its bigger than Lausanne 1 and even bigger than Lausanne 2.
Its bigger than Edinburgh 1910 and 2010
Its the most wired, webbed, blogged, twittered, streamed missions event EVER!
Its also more SOUTHERLY than any missions conference you have ever followed.
It happens in Cape Town, South Africa and it starts next week. Like Oct 16 – 25th
Overblown hype? A lot of South Africans seem to think so, to judge from the way most South African bloggers are ignoring it.
