In 2003, Roland Robertson, a Scottish sociologist delivered a paper called, “The Conceptual Promise of Glocalization: Commonality and Diversity.” This was a capstone to his study of a new sociological phenomenon that identified how the world was becoming seamlessly integrated locally and globally. With this “glocal” compression of nations, geographies and culture into an almost continuous large-scale integration, very few locales are isolated from the affects of another. Events in one nation have effects that transmit far beyond their bordering nations. It is a glocal world.

An unexpected phone call from Jeff
Christopherson, then the North American Mission Board (NAMB) vice president of
the Northeast and Canada regions, provided a needed break in my day. I had
never met Jeff but knew of him by reputation. The topic of our conversation was
church planter coaching. And much to my surprise, Jeff was inviting me to pray

Rewiring our long-established hardwiring can be an
exasperating procedure. Our spiritual muscle memory has been dedicated to the

discover the sacred assembly becomes a natural byproduct. These four marks do
not describe every nuance of health, but gaps within these often lead to a
troubling road ahead.
