    Here the emphasis is on how we become effective diplomats in engaging various religious traditions beyond Christendom as well as civil authorities. As it pertains to engaging other religions, we need to develop global witness that is sensitive to matters of the common good. This will have a bearing on the church's own engagement with the state. We need to be sensitive as to how to be effective evangelistic, missional witnesses who are viewed as hospitable agents of shalom in "other lands" here and abroad.
