Soundings from OMSC@PTS’s pilgrimage in God’s mission with the world church
Welcome to The OCCASIONAL, OMSC@PTS’s blog for local happenings at the center and global perspectives from our staff, partners, and friends – a network of church leaders, scholars, and cross-cultural workers from all over the world.
The blog’s name, the OCCASIONAL, alludes to the earliest of OMSC’s publications: The Occasional Bulletin from the Missionary Research Library, which was first published on March 13, 1950. For decades, it served as the premier source for news about developments from the world church. The legacy of the Occasional Bulletin continues with the current International Bulletin of Mission Research.
Today, The OCCASIONAL builds upon this tradition and leans into the future to engage in God’s mission by amplifying the voices of the world Christian movement.
