Pastoral Musings from Rain City

it's about 'what is church?' it's about whether 'emergent' is the latest Christian trend or something more substantial. it's musing on what it means to live faithfully...in the city, in America, in community, intergenerationally, at this time in history...

Hearing...and then doing

Here's the sermon link that goes with this picture. Indeed, it often seems that physical response, and visual expression do more to move truth from head to heart than a thousand sermons could ever do on their own. On the other hand, our experiences of nailing 'certificates of debt' to the cross this past Sunday would never have been meaningful at all if not for a thoughtful consideration of Paul's declarations, which can be found here.

Through all this, I'm reminded of the value of not just hearing - but responding. May our practice of both habits increase.

We did an exercise almost exactly like this on a trip to Mexico once. It was one of the most powerful activities I've been a part of.
