An innovative and participatory teaching method using interactive digital media and "blogging" was used to teach and discuss David Bosch's Transforming mission. The teaching method is described, as along with a brief summary of ten of Bosch's elements of an emerging ecumenical paradigm. From these discussions, it became clear that Transforming mission found fertile ground in the hearts and minds of a digitally literate, innovative generation of emerging theologians. The end result of these public digital discussions provides a window into the way emerging missiologists reinterpret Transforming mission twenty years after its first publication. A brief summary of interesting points of discussion and reinterpretations of Bosch's description of "mission as ..." introduces the reader to a community of trustworthy interpreters who have taken the first small steps towards Transforming mission through blogging.
