Ok – my buds, Henry, Mikey, Dave, Ken, and maybe a couple of others will jump in for the McLaren read. After all I've been reading ABOUT it, I'm a bit hesitant and apprehensive, but there is NOTHING like talking books and theology with these guys. Henry is someone I'm really impressed with…check out his blog and how he is trying to give Children's ministry a missional, fresh spin. Besides that, he is a Canuck! Mikey, what can I say – he's my "lil bro"…smart, inquisitive, funny and insightful. His blog is here! He's had more "bipolar" experiences in "churchworld" than most of my other friends combined. Dave, he's one of my best friends…well-read, opinionated, intelligent, positively argumentative; all the things you love in a pal. Ken is a great guy…loves good beer, good food and new ideas. So, I guess I have to jump in…I'm going to try to convince my kid Aaron to go for it too! It seems like we have more debates these days about theology, ministry, worldview, etc. Good for a father/son relationship – there is ONE thing we agree on – expensive musical equipment that fulfill our dream of the perfect tone! Oh well…we all have to have one unrepentant sin to struggle with!
So - here's our tact – get the book fellas – we'll set out a reading schedule next week!
