Guest Editorial: The New Generation and Missions - by Ruslan Zagidulin
AbstractThis issue's topic of "The Next Generation and Missions" (perhaps better termed "The New Generation and Missions") might simply be reduced to issues surrounding proper integration of technologies with the theory and practice of mission. Clearly, however, such a reductionist step would be off-base. A more constructive approach involves seeing how new technologies have changed, and continue to change, the new generation's social behavior and even worldview. The new generation is not the next generation, it is the generation now. Contemporary mission is not just towards the next generation, it is mission with the new generation in every domain of life.
