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.
