Allen, Don. “Fruitful Practices: A New Generation of Workers Has Discovered Encouraging Alternatives.” Mission Frontiers, July-August 2008: 6-10. Recently, a new generation of worker-observers has discovered an alternative to “reinventing the wheel” when bringing the gospel to a new culture. As they examine common practices among colleagues living elsewhere in the Muslim world, certain patterns emerge in places where Jesus-centred communities do blossom. These patterns are referred to as “fruitful practices.” Fruitful practices enable us to delight in seeing and hearing how God is building a people for himself among all the nations of the world, including Muslims; and empower us to join him in his work.
