What does "missional" mean?

Back in 2007, I ran a series on the meanings of the word "missional." I came across these blogs the other day and thought it may be helpful to run excerpts of them again. Below are a few excerpts from a number of blog posts on the meanings of "missional."

Preface

Part 1: The Debate over a Definition

Part 2: More Thoughts on the Definition of "Missional"

Part 3: Matters of Semantics

Part 4: The Mission of Missional
