God's Playbook

God's Playbook
The missional basis of the Bible serves as the playbook for Love & Basketball Ministries. The Bible contains a number of scriptures and texts that provide a rationale for the ultimate mission of God. “The Bible renders to us the story of God’s mission through God’s people in their engagement with God’s world for the sake of the whole of God’s creation.” Furthermore, “the Bible which glories in diversity and celebrates multiple human cultures, the Bible which builds its most elevated theological claims on utterly particular and sometimes very local events, the Bible which sees everything in relational, not abstract terms, and the Bible which does the bulk of its work through the medium of stories … through all this variety, locality, particularity and diversity, the Bible is nevertheless actually the story.” The Bible provides us with the story that we need in order to understand and affirm our world and to live in it as God’s culturally diverse people people. And within this story, as narrated or anticipated by the Bible, God’s Playbook, there is at work the God whose mission is evident from creation to new creation.

“Healing encounters in the gospels take place in the context of a relationship (between healer & person needing healing), & often explicitly involve the healing of the social relationships within that particular context” (Savage, 2007) #psychology #mentalhealth #faith #pastors
