‘We prepared for the wrong pathogen’: Questions for Strategic Adaptation in Mission in a Post-Covid 19 World
This article considers the global missiological implications of the Covid-19 pandemic. The author looks at the way forward through the lens of the four questions raised by Martin Luther King in a parallel period of crisis in 1967-1968. Within the missiological context of a post-Covid-19 world, this article explores in turn the questions “Where are we?”, “Where do we go from here?”, “Who are we?”, and “Who are we meant to be?” This article is the first in a four-part series. It is followed in this journal issue by two responses from the Global South, and concluded by the author’s rejoinder.
