Friends in Conversation
I’ve had the privilege of reading through, in the last few months, excerpts of this amazing guy’s mind. His name is Brian McLaren, from the States – and has given Christianity a whole new meaning. He has cynically criticised the American model of Christianity, saying many of the things I myself have long thought. That the evangelical model the modern church is so used to, is very much a shallow and unthinking process. One that has reduced the greatness of a relationship to Steps 1, 2, 3: Believe in Jesus and you will be saved!! There’s your passport to heaven! And conveniently forget about everything else on earth.
One of the ways we can get this discussion going in Malaysia (and many of us have started already) is to come for an upcoming event on the 3rd-4th March 2007, when Brian McLaren himself will be coming to town. Check it out here.
Emergent Malaysia is the main host of the event, you can read more of the works, writings, thoughts and ideas here.
More to come soon..
