In the midst of umma on the internet : religious profession and witness in a globalized era : a response to F.O. Thoresen


To describe global change is a challenging task. Frank-Ole Thoresen’s paper on Somali converts in Norway shows that ‘small facts can speak to large issues’ and that rather modest empirical facts can help us interpret global change. The focus of Thoresen’s paper is clear in the sense that the case is of general interest to anyone preoccupied with the future of global mission, and the geographical focus is equally interesting for anyone preoccupied with ‘reaching the unreached’ in a globalized era. In his response to the article Drønen uses the occasion to comment on two central aspects of the paper and tries to show that interpretation of the challenges of global mission is not only a challenging task, it is also a very difficult one. The crystal ball of Christian mission is for the time being very cloudy, but behind the two skies that he has chosen to call globalization and commitment, the hope is that we can catch small glimpses of the future, which can encourage us to rethink the global Christian commandment.
