Europe

At the recent General Assembly of Europe Evangelical Alliance, Greg Richard, who is the European Leadership Forum organizer, did well by reminding us that Europe is to be looked upon as a missionary priority.

This dramatic reality must be strongly pointed out at the international level. But if we want to reach the whole of Europe with the whole Gospel, I think it is absolutely necessary not to reckon Europe as a monolithic entity, but we must take Europe’s complexity and diversity into account. Before undertaking anything, we must discern differences between European countries with a mainly protestant heritage, those with a mainly Catholic heritage, and those having known Communism and/or Orthodoxy.

As a French citizen, living in a country which is difficult to reach with the Gospel because of its other religious backgrounds mixed with a strong secular influence, I obviously feel a particular burden in my heart to promote the Gospel in European Latin countries.
