Thursday Reflection – week 4

October 19, 2006


Class today was good. I feel like we are really starting to get into the heart of the material. Over the past few weeks, I have been struggling with what it looks like to follow Jesus. Irresistible Revolution by Claiborne and Emerging Churches by Gibbs and Bolger convinced me that the Church’s job is to bring the kingdom, but I have no idea what that looks like. At one point, I even had to put down the book I was reading and go read the Gospel of Matthew because I had no idea what Jesus actually did throughout his life. The Church has made Jesus’ life so nice, so comfortable, so non-threatening. I don’t feel like anybody has really taught me what it looks like to follow Christ, so I am excited that we have begun to look at how Jesus sought to redeem culture.
