Life with Jesus on the Ground

Read the following that I found over at brianmclaren.net.

Back in the 1970’s I was a part of  a community of Christ followers who desired to live radically for Jesus. We were part of the Jesus Movement of that day and chose a communal way to live that out. So, I can readily identify with these New Monastics. Following Christ is active. Follow is a verb. There’s no such thing as Couch Potatoes for Jesus. The last few months this has been driven home me in many ways. Hopefully, prayerfully, the future will see more “lived faith” than discussed theories of faith.
