An exciting missions resource that I just stumbled upon in St. Francis Magazine. One thing that is most unique about St. Francis magazine is that it clearly is the fruit of collaboration across the Christian spectrum - including Orthodox, Coptic and Catholic thinkers like Samir Khalil Samir, S.J.,an Egyptian Jesuit, who is a professor of Islamic studies and of the history of Arab culture at the Université Saint-Joseph in Beirut and at the Pontifical Oriental Institute in Rome.

(Samir wrote this about Pope Benedict's approach to proclaiming Christ in a Muslim context: I really like this pope, his balance, his clearness. He makes no compromise: he continues to underline the need to announce the Gospel in the name of rationality and therefore he does not let himself be influenced by those who fear and speak out against would-be proselytism. The pope asks always for guarantees that Christian faith can be “proposed” and that it can be “freely chosen.” )

From the St. Francis website:

St Francis Magazine aims to strengthen the Christian witness in the Arab World. The magazine does this by the articles we publish here, through studies, and by offering applied training on matters related to the Christian apostolate in the Arab World.

In missiology much can be debated, and that is what we like to stimulate with St Francis Magazine. However, we have some solid parameters. Central for us is our commitment to the triune God as revealed in the Christian Scriptures and ultimately in his Son Jesus Christ. We adhere to the historic faith as expressed by the Ecumenical Councils of the early Church.

We also hold that good missiology can never be separated from good ecclesiology. As Jesus Christ expresses Himself through His Body, the Church, those who proclaim Him can never do so in an individualist manner, but only in communion with the Church.


Very interesting. Check it out!

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
