An associate of mine who serves in a challenging area of Mexico City has developed what he calls “a theology of mañana.”  It basically means that—in the midst of all the crazy ups and downs and unforeseens that can happen in ministry—we believe that God is in control. We look forward to the new day coming, whenever that may be, and we celebrate that what we see right now is not all there is.

Refreshing, isn’t it? Mañana puts a wider lens on our day-to-day ministry.
