Adrenaline for the Soul

Jonny Baker has reviewed Tom Sines new book and on the basis of the review I will be ordering a copy methinks. Jonny flagged up this quote and I love it, a little adrenalin for faith, soul and discipleship anyone ……..
new conspirators.jpg“when jesus began teaching he made it clear that his new empire would be unlike any empire the world had ever seen. it came on a donkey’s back. it’s imperial council was comprised of a handful of unemployed fishermen, a couple of IRS agents, a prostitute and some hangers on. jesus demonstrated how to wield his imperial power by washing feet, telling stories and playing with kids. jesus’ empire is based on the absurd values that the last should be first, losers are winners, and the most influential in the empire should clean the toilets. members of the empire are instructed to love their enemies, forgive their friends, always give twice as much as people ask of them and never pursue power or position. jesus insisted that those who are part of his empire shouldn’t worry about finances, but simply trust god. the resources to run this empire were basins, towels, and leftover lunches. this empire also developed a reputation for constant partying – almost always with the wrong kind of people”
I really like the idea of “Conspirators” …. Working with young people, I think it’s great word for framing and exploring what discipleship might mean.
