musings about the emerging church, mission and contemporary culture...

God is at large, intimately involved in his world in ways that the church is maybe just waking up to!

what is spirituality?...

Sunday, October 15, 2006

Matt Stone posted the below short video 'here' and asked some pertinent questions...

Do you agree with what they say? Disagree?
What do you think this is saying back to Christians?
What do you think Christ would say to them?

I guess, with this being a collection of American voices, I would have to add the question...

Does this reflect people's understanding of spirituality in the UK too?

My guess (educated from experience of conversations had) is that there's much here that resonates with the UK, so carrying a challenge to the UK 'Church' - how to make meaningful connections with people on a spiritual journey who have rejected institutional religion. How do we enable (or maybe better... how do we stop preventing) the message of Christ to break free from 'Christianity'?

Watch the video and see what you think. Feel free to add comments here or on Matt's blog!
