More initial questions for my Th.M. thesis:
- What might ecclesiology look like with a missional push and an eschatological pull? In other words, if ecclesiology on earth exists on the trajectory from missiology to eschatology, then in what does essential ecclesiology consist?
- What is the essential nature of the ecclesia and how does that essential nature impact the structure and practices of the local congregations? Same question, but regarding essential function. Same question, but regarding essential mission.
- Assuming an ecclesiology from above and an ecclesiology from below, what would each look like and where might they meet?
