He is Not the next McClaren
cant flat stack.
I am the next Brian McClaren
can flat stack.
Heres why: First I teach others the importance of skipping Sunday. Unless inspired to do so.This includes scripture reading, praying, and fasting. Sometimes life throws us things we cant handle, and during these times those items listed above may not have any answers.
Back in college I challenged my teachers, to think outside the box. If they taught propaganda they paid for it. Teach so that others may become one, not you. .My friends dont get a free pass on this either. Life is hard, Im wrong sometimes, your wrong sometimes. Lets Join or make a cumminity to keep us up on our feet.
Third I continue to believe that what you can do in the morning can wait till the evening.See my boys Ronnie and Mitchell. Zach. Ryan. Rex. Joey. Kyle. While im asleep Tony is taking a Bath reading his newest theology book.
Fourth. I teach others the value of each other. They need not the masses for answers, just themselves. We only need to trust ourselves and those closest to us. Meaning that a small community is not a bad thing.
Fifth I continue to teach that schedules are only for the generations were leaving behind(insert boomers here ie Tony Jones). We don't need a palm (pilot) to act as our guiding god, we only need whats inside, our heart or what ever might compell one. Its the heart that matters most. (adam duritz)
Sixth I continue to teach the value of the "heart" . God created it, God inspires. It is too be valued as much as scripture its self , along with art, culture, and others. Emerging souls need this element without it they will be forever stuck in Modern land.
Seventh I continue to promote the value of grace. Without knowing the true nature of our depravity , one can never hope to be free or learn to love one-another. It opens the door in other words. Im not there, and will never be. Grace shows us that life has gray areas, and we can lern from it, or stick our finger out at it. Its they Gray that haunt me on a daily basis.
Tony come back to me when you find the orange flags.
