“Christianity is a lifestyle – a way of being in the world that is simple, non-violent, shared, and loving. However, we made it into an established “religion” (and all that goes with that) and avoided the lifestyle change itself. One could be warlike, greedy, racist, selfish, and vain in most of Christian history, and still believe that Jesus is one’s “personal Lord and Savior” . . . The world has no time for such silliness anymore. The suffering on Earth is too great.” – Richard Rohr
Steve encourages us in this message by helping us remember we can’t go back to what we once were. It’s pretty urgent that we naturally evolve. Instead of moving from one fenced community to another, what if we are a tent community? What if we are a community that instead of creating something permanent, we move naturally into the unknown?
