Abstract

250 in the South and the North, in the East and West to make them fertile at the spot and worldwide. 3. We need to find new types of presence of Christian communities in the world in which the form of aggressive mission endeavors of the colonial times is overcome in order to be able to live a new form of "abrahamitic" presence. We have to look for new expressions of Christian life which are adequate for its message. This might be a new type of pilgrimages (to me the German Protestant "Kirchentag" seems like a Protestant version of a modem-day pilgri- mage of the young people). Furthermore there should be added new patterns of social life in communi- ties, religious orders, ashrams, basic communities in which ecological, social, spiritual and missionary existence is lived in a convivial way. It is quite likely that in the future the power of God will not necessarily be seen in great and mighty events, but instead it will become obvious in the small, the rather inconspicuous events, by the "incarnation" of the cross. Small may become. The Franciscan maxim may be going to reach validity: Deus semper minor. God is always
