We Will Survive

March 9, 2006

I have brought the suck at blogging this past month. Oh well.

So I started reading a new book called New Kind of Christian. I am only 4 chapters in, but I have found it super stimulating and interesting. So far, the book is about how our society is transitioning from the modern world to the post-modern world. To sum up what I have read so far, it is about the fact that modern Christianity is clinging on to the foundations they laid in the modern world, while everything else is progressing. In other words, the Church is losing relevancy because it laid too much foundation in our surroundings and environment. I am paraphrasing like no other, but I hope the point is coming through clear. Anyway, the book is really opening my eyes to the reasons that I am a Christian. After thought, the main reason I am a Christian is that I have a relationship with a living, breathing God. It is so easy to limit God to our surroundings, but He is so much bigger than that. Maybe it is just human nature, but I think we need to get over ourselves. I have heard a lot of concern regarding future generations and their relevance to God. Personally, I feel very optimistic. I think our societal changes are going to force a re-evaluation of our Western/European view on God.

Anyway, on a personal note, I am moving this Saturday. I am so excited about it. I will finally have my own spot to study/keep clean/sleep in/ yada. I have been a nomad for a while now and it sucks. Although I can honestly say I think it has been good for me. I don’t have a dependency on home. Which I think is going to be crucial when I move into missions. Anyway, if you are my friend, and reading this, you should come check it out.
