Looking Forward To This

I"ve been checking out The Simple Way online and have orderd Shane Clairborn's book The Irrestible Revolution: Living As An Oridnary Radical. I can't wait for it to come in the mail. I think I'm going to like this guy. Here is a quote from the book

"When the church becomes a place of brokerage rather than an organic community, she ceases to be alive. The church becomes a distribution center, a place where the poor go to get stuff and the rich come to dump stuff. Both go away satisfied (the rich feel good, the poor get clothed and fed) but no one is transformed. And Jesus did not set up a program but modeled a way of living that incarnated the reign of God."

Interesting thought...

Yeah, I saw Urbs post. I've been trying to think of a semi-intellegent response. I always feel so stupid compared to him.
