Thoughts and Excursions

Jared Wilson's Kill Your Jesus Talisman. Jared has the knack for making great points with great brevity, often by way of powerful and original metaphors. Makings of a fine writer, that.

An old post from Frank Viola's blog, Discipleship, Mission, and Church. This challenges me a little, because Frank says "you cannot separate discipleship from ekklesia." I know he's right about that, and it's got me thinking I should wander into a church one of these Sundays.

God is missional. His mission has everything to do with Himself, and so the community that He is building is essentially Godward and worshipful, much as is the heavenly "community" we see in the Book of Revelation. In that context of what we might call "shared awe" lies the possibility for true and deep community.
