Brian McLaren at Mars Hill Bible Church

Yes folk, it’s a little like having the Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays all at once! I am of course referring Brian McLaren speaking at Mars Hill Bible Church recently. Just as Christmas and Thanksgiving are my two favorite holidays, when it comes to spirituality, Christianity and the emerging church, Brian and Mars Hill are up at the top for me.

Brian suggests that the picture on the box doesn’t match the puzzle pieces we have. That is when it comes to the predominant christian worldview (the picture on the box), versus what we actually discover in sacred scripture (the puzzle pieces). You can download the talk from the mars hill website here.

    I found Brian’s sermon to be most thought provoking. I think it is time that we start being honest about the difference between what we have been told by “the church” and what we can see in God’s word. I thought the lid on the puzzle box anaology was BRILLIANT! Wish I had thought of it. I will shamelessly use it repeatedly to make the same point to those I speak with. I am sick and tired of impotent christians who go to church, hear the word of God and go right back to doing what they were before they got there. What a waste. Isn’t there something better for them to do? Something more entertaining? I, for one, am challenged to do what I can to model Christ, do His will so that it may be more like His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
