Very cool, Dinah! Dinah

I'd love to discuss "A New Kind of Christian" here, once you've read it... I could hardly put it down.

I then devoured the two sequels. Let me tell you, this guy is making waves in the faith community -- and LOTS of controversy!

I found out that his church is only 45 minutes north of me... AND one of his staff members is a former friend (his wife sang at our wedding 18 years ago)... he came to visit today, and to invite us to attend... very cool, nontraditional service.

During communion, there are "stations" you can visit -- one to make an offering, another to partake in the wine and bread, another where you can sit on couches and talk to folks who will pray for your concerns (confidential and private!), a prayer labyrinth, and a station where you can doodle, draw or write with crayon on a big poster... (grafitti!).

Not what I grew up with...

The whole modern-emerging-into-post-modern matrix is fascinating to me...

... a wonderful and yet challenging time to be alive!

I can't help recalling how the medieval folks burned the "forward thinkers" of THAT era (i.e., "the world is round") at the stake!

Anywho, if it captures your attention, bring it up here as a thread... I'm curious about your reaction!

Shalom, Dena

P.S. Thanks for checking on that other post... I'd love to share it with my own children.
