I really like this.  Check out the NY Times article from last April on Mitzvah Tanks which I meant to post much sooner.

Mission is not ‘Oh, Sunday morning come visit our corps … church …’.  Mission is to go, and to give (John 3:16-17).  The Hasidic Jewish community in NYC engages in mission by putting their synagogues on wheels on the streets.  To conquer the world with light, goodness, kindness (Yishai Eliefja).

So what is Sunday morning for?  For those engaged in mission.  Not engaged in mission?  Why come on Sunday?  Really.

Check this Wikipedia understanding of the term ‘mitzvah’.

Is mission taking place from your place of worship?  What is your corps/church doing to tip the scales in your neighborhood?
