A fool for Christ

Powerful stuff:

What if this is my epiphany, LJ, and I accept the path you offer, rejecting the claims to know what you assert to be mere magical fantasy and pure self-delusion? If I choose the life you offer–the life of “intellectual honesty� and contempt for those less wise, the life of mockery of men so foolish as to pray, the life of lofty intellect, of propositional knowledge devoid of positional experience–what’s in it for me? You see, I am a selfish man, and have no interest in accepting a gift horse without checking its teeth.

But, you see, I have looked in that nag’s mouth. The mane is glorious but the mouth is toothless–the horse will starve, slowly but surely. For I have already chosen the life you offer, and found it wanting, and empty, and joyless, and lonely.

Daily Dig

I’ve been receiving the Daily Dig emails from the Bruderhof communities for quite some time now. I usually read the brief bit in the email, but rarely click through to the full article – I never feel like I have the time. But, strangely enough, I save them… every one… in a folder in my email inbox.

Anyways, check it out. There’s some great stuff there.

Quote of the Day

Note: In all transparency, I wrote this post to get a free book (you can too) but I wouldn’t have written it if I didn’t find the Daily Dig valuable. Books for links: what a great idea — I like those Bruderhof folks more each day!

Riding tall bikes for Christ

MPR did a story on the Scallywags (the tall bike people)! All the Scallywags I’ve met are amazing people with astounding stories of how God has changed their lives. Very cool stuff. Check it out.

If you’ve ever seen a member of the Minneapolis Scallywags Bike Club pedaling down the street, you’ll probably never forget the image. They ride tall bikes — made from bicycle frames stacked and welded together. The Scallywags ride to bring attention to their faith in Christ.

God chaser

Firepots is the “miscellaneous musings of a maniacal mystic in mid-life mis-managing his midrift while searching for the radical middle of an authentic life with an authentic faith.”

This post really messed me up: Quote from the God Chasers (splitting pulpit)

Lord, I want I want to be a God chaser. I want to see your move that powerfully in my church and in churches across the world. Your will be done on earth as it it is in heaven. Come and redeem your people. We cry out to you. Amen.
