Christian mission is often done out of disrespect for other people, in an attempt to destroy their religion or convert them. Genuine mission does not focus on religion but on people, so it avoids all violence in the name of God. It acts from love, motivated by God, the Father of all. Formal dialogues do not bring Christians any closer to people of different faiths. What is needed is vulnerable and sacrificial love.
