The ALS Ice bucket challenge is for those suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease. ALS has raised 62.5 million from July 29th to August 23rd, which is quite a bit more than last year during that same time period – 2.4 million. Since I was challenged by two people I get to challenge six people. My challenge goes out to Alan Hirsch, David Fitch, Tim Catchim, Linda Bergquist, Won Choi and Diachi Kimer...

The Forgotten Ways by Alan Hirsch
“many of our current practices seem to be the wrong way around ... we seem to make church complex and discipleship too easy.”
Alan Hirsch
Adam's Return by Richard Rohr
“If the mystery of the Trinity is the template of all reality, what we have in the Trinitarian God is the perfect balance between union and differentiation, autonomy and mutuality, identity and community.”
Richard Rohr
Creating a Missional Culture by J.R. Woodward
"This leadership model protects us from the limits and shortcomings of a personality-dominated church culture -- no matter how gifted -- while still honoring the importance of leadership itself, sensitized to particular cultures and giftings. JR un..." Read more of this review »
Creating a Missional Culture by J.R. Woodward
"“Go into all the world and make disciples” it an agreeable statement that resounds through the highways and byways of the church and yet before stepping outside the door to the mission field, we hesitate—why? We don’t move because we’re unprepared..." Read more of this review »
Creating a Missional Culture by J.R. Woodward
"JR writes with the authority of one who has lived out missional life, has equipped others to do the same, and is multiplying leaders in the missional movement. This was my introduction to the term/concept of polycentric leadership and it's a home..." Read more of this review »

“the illiterate of the future will not be those that cannot read or write. Rather, they will be those that cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”
J.R. Woodward, Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World

“When people come to the Table in the congregation you serve, do they remember that Jesus’ body was broken for all and that his blood was spilled for the whole world, and thus seek to be bearers of God’s saving purpose for his whole world (see Col 1:20; 1 Jn 2:2)? Or do they view themselves as exclusive beneficiaries of God’s grace? Jesus takes the table of fellowship and extends it to include the tax collectors, prostitutes and those left out by the religious system. How well does the congregation you serve do this?”
J.R. Woodward, Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World

“Ultimately, each church will be evaluated by only one thing—its disciples. Your church is only as good as her disciples. It does not matter how good your praise, preaching, programs or property are; if your disciples are passive, needy, consumeristic, and not [moving in the direction of radical obedience,] your church is not good.”
J.R. Woodward, Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World

“More than a strategy, vision or plan, the unseen culture of a church powerfully shapes her ability to grow, mature and live missionally.”
J.R. Woodward, Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World

“The world is now an urban place. The resources and concerns of the church need to acknowledge this.”
J.R. Woodward, Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World

“Creating a missional culture is more than just adding some outward programs to the church structure. Creating a missional culture goes to the heart and identity of God, to who we are and who we are becoming.”
J.R. Woodward, Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World

“The doctrine of the Trinity means that relationship, that fellowship, that togetherness and sharing, that self-giving and other-centeredness are not afterthoughts with God, but the deepest truth about the being of God. The Father is not consumed with Himself; He loves the Son and the Spirit. And the Son is not riddled with narcissism; he loves his Father and the Spirit. And the Spirit is not preoccupied with himself and his own glory; the Spirit loves the Father and the Son. Giving, not taking; other-centeredness, not self-centeredness; sharing, not hoarding are what fire the rockets of God and lie at the very center of God’s existence as Father, Son and Spirit.”
C. Baxter Kruger, Jesus and the Undoing of Adam

“If the mystery of the Trinity is the template of all reality, what we have in the Trinitarian God is the perfect balance between union and differentiation, autonomy and mutuality, identity and community.”
Richard Rohr, Adam's Return: The Five Promises of Male Initiation
