Ecclesia and the diakonia are integrally related. Christian mission becomes true diakonia only when the social and transformative work of the church is directed towards a wider mission paradigm in the transformation of the socio-economic structures. Here church becomes an event. As the church seeks to relate its mission to the world in diakonia, it should also be prepared to undergo a process of self-criticism where structures and identities irrelevant to the mission are repeatedly challenged with the central message of the crucified Jesus. In this process of mission, Mothy Varkey hopes that the church Would constantly redefine its borders and margins as it strives to become a restorative and transforming presence in the world.
