Total Church book discussion

If you've been around this blog for any length of time, you've heard me pushing the book Total Church. The book's basic argument is that the good news of Jesus Christ is not just a theological construct but a social construct -- that is, it's not enough to say, "I believe in Jesus" but the gospel has implications for how I live that relationship with Jesus out in a community of believers.

I honestly believe that this topic -- Christian community -- is going to be the sweeping reformation of the church in our times. As we move beyond Christendom into a time where Christians don't enjoy a privileged position in society, where the religious landscape is made up of many choices and many gods, Jesus' followers will have to figure out how to live together in community.

Are you curious? Interested? Let's get some people together to talk about this book and the topics it raises! How about Wednesday evening, October 20th, 6-8 pm? Central is amazingly crowded on Wednesday evenings so how about Dunn Brothers Coffee in Elk River? If you're planning to come sit in on the conversation, let me know. You can get a copy of the book on Amazon or in the Central bookstore!
