I wanted to post some quotes that I used this past Sunday. They are from some of the people I respect and who are helping shape me so passing along their words seems worthwhile in a forum like this.
- Christianity is largely viewed as being unChristian by outsiders. From unChristian by Kinnaman and Lyons.
- "We need to go deeper." Brian Zahnd, pastor of Word of Life Church, St. Joseph, MO.
- “Some argue, with good cause, that the term Christian is now polluted beyond recognition.” (Leonard Sweet, Church of the Perfect Storm)
- “The church must stop chasing the impossible, implausible, and dishonorable dream of re-Christianizing society. It’s time for the church to understand that this is a missionary culture (Babylon) and that the church needs to think and act missionally.” Allan Hirsch, author of Forgotten Ways.
Looking forward to pressing in Deeper, in Faith, Hope and Love to join in the Mission of God in 2009.
