For the Chinese, 2018 is the year of the dog. But for All Nations, this is the Year of the Starfish. The starfish is a most amazing creature. If you cut a starfish in half, it does not die. It is not incapacitated or limbless. Instead, it multiplies into two starfish.
As each new year begins, I set aside time to meditate on the mission statement of All Nations. I usually pray through the mission statement at least once daily, but at the new year, it’s good to step back and ask the question, “How can I uniquely be involved in making disciples and training leaders to ignite church planting movements among the neglected peoples of the earth?”
