Interesting times

A lot of my work at the moment is around the whole arena of Discipleship, specifically helping churches to look at how they might approach whole life discipleship, and explore practice that is not chiefly informational and doctrinal.
Helping churches to explore the sort of faith that they are modelling, living … and thus inviting young people into, it seems to me is key to engagement with young people. Too often churches are inadvertently offering a ‘belief system’ rather than a radical offer of life and purpose in and through Christ. It’s not that they are not doing wonderful things but somehow the sharing of the story, and of the life, comes down to words … and assuming that people are empty vessels.
Alan Hirsch describes the current state of Discipleship as “an intellectual assimilation of theological ideas”
If you’d like to chat through some of this stuff and for us to have a mutual learning conversation, then give me a shout (or an e-mail). Musing
