Nomination season

Leave a comment

Yup, almost sounds like an announcement of hunting season.

I had hoped to work in some sermons in which we looked at the passages that describe what Kingdom Leadership or Leadership in the Body of Christ looks like, but looking at the calendar I can’t see that working out. So I’m going to try communicate some of the same things via this blog.

Today’s reflection is more about mistaken criteria we often use to select leaders.

Yes, a bit of a mysterious title, but that’s a way to pique your curiosity and have you feel compelled to follow the link.

I am in a time when I am making many new theological and scriptural connections, and even though I have a gut sense it might be time to slow down in presenting you with new-to-you interpretations and understandings, when God has me in a phase like this when many things are converging into ideas and applications that make sense, I just have to share them!

So here are this weeks thoughts: http://wp.me/P3etrg-5x

Lending substance to my claim to see similarties

Leave a comment

As I mentioned publicly, I have been reading a book co-written by nine young adults who were raised Hutterite and who found the true gospel of freedom in Jesus Christ and left their colonies (and often families) to live in our world.

I also mentioned publicly that I see similarities in the CRC I have known and know now and some of the mistaken cultural and religious beliefs and behaviours of the Hutterites and other similar groups.

The post this link takes you to is a partial demonstration of what I see. I simply had to stop the project of documenting this, because more important work was falling by the wayside.
