Good blog reading…

June 6, 2008

I finished school yesterday.  I want to blog about this milestone sometime.  Not today.  Catching up a bit with some blog reading.  Here are some good posts (h/t Michael Danner):

Brian McLaren, “Note to critics and self”

Tim Stevens, “Open letter to a church hopper”

Michael Danner, “The Forgotten Ways meets real life”

In his post, Michael offers this helpful diagram to frame our thinking on being the church.  Helpful thinking on the consumption/production program-driven model of church.

    At first I thought, “what’s so surprising about Danner’s model?” But I suppose a lot of Christians switch the 2nd two boxes … putting our understanding of mission as an outflow of our understanding of what it means to be Church. I like this model much more – that our understanding of mission comes directly out of our understanding of Christ and then Church flows out of how we do that mission. I wonder, however, what Danner means when he says, we need to have “the courage to start fresh.”
