I have tagged a number of blog posts in the last few weeks that my heart was in tune with. Each of these somehow captures pieces of what I am hoping for in a new church community:
- The Consuming Christian and the Consuming Church (Todd Hiestand) – Todd is a good friend, and my initial connection into the Ecclesia Network. I look forward to sharing more time together in the coming years.
- Things They Tell Church Planters That Are Simply Wrong (Pat Loughery) – Much like Todd, Pat is on a short list of friends whose last name I’m not sure how to actually pronounce. Pat has become a Seattle friend who I haven’t gotten to spend enough time with.
- Pastoral Recovery (Hugh Halter) – I’ve only had a chance to speak with Hugh once or twice on the phone, but really appreciate what he is helping to develop with Missio. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of the new book he co-authored: The Tangible Kingdom.
