Downward Mobility in an Upscale World – shane claiborne speaks…

been wandering around the simple way page and reading thru a couple of shane's articles and really being inspired and challenged and challenged to inspire... here is an extract from 'Downward Mobility in an Upscale World', an article by Shane Claiborne "Over the years I have come to see how charity fits into — and legitimizes — our system of wealth and poverty. Charity assures that the rich will feel good while the poor will [...]

theological masturbation: shane claiborne's vibes on "the emerging church"

anyone who knows me even slightly well will know that one of my top three life-changing books is "The Irresistible Revolution" by shane claiborne who is one of my real life heroes - i met him briefly a couple of years ago when he was in J Bay speaking at an international Christian surf conference and got to chat to him for a bit and interview him for two magazine articles i was writing. i [...]

new favourite site…

if you haven't yet, first read the previous blog link to the shane claiborne article on prayer - and then check out this site which appears to have a prayer or prayer list per day - i think this is going to be something that will help direct my prayers as i think i am a particularly bad pray'er and something like this to stimulate and direct and get me started might be just what [...]

a season for holy mischief (shane claiborne)

if you haven't read 'The Irresistible Revolution' by shane claiborne yet, then you don't have to, but i would highly recommend it, altho it may wreck you as a compromising comfortable christian and start turning you into a revolutionary Christ-follower - read what he has to say about the season... 'Critiquing the thick irony of the Christmas season is fair. It's ludicrous that we celebrate the birth of the homeless baby Jesus by indulging in [...]

hitler's mom
