The Irresistible Revolution / The Future Church…Hopefully

Posted: May 11, 2007 in Everything

In order to get more “reading” done, I’ve started to listen to books on CD. Last week I picked up the mp3 of Shane Claiborne’s “The Irresistible Revolution.”

It is a powerful message that has been close to my heart for a long time, though I think I’m better at talking and writing about it than doing it. Claiborne’s life challenges in the same way that Mother Teresa – whom he interned under – challenges.

When I think of the future church, I hope what Claiborne is doing is right at the heart of it, though that spells unease and trouble for most of us.

    That’s cool, Sean. Can you imagine working with Mother Teresa?

    We are all better at talking and writing about it — but that’s a good place to start. You know the old adage – “the first step is admitting that (we) have a problem”. The present day church has several big obstacles to overcome. And their names are… Just kidding!! Well, mostly kidding.

    I hope the future church is more like what God intended. There is work to be done.

    Thanks for your post and the clip.

    What I liked best about the IRRESISTABLE REVOLUTION was that I didn’t feel belittled even though I am not as far down the path as Claibourne is. Small steps are perhaps more solid.
