The gift of giving...

Becki Jenkins
Missionary Connection

The lost art of giving for the sake of it has been lost. How can we get it back in a society that is stuck on me…me….me. As Christians we are taught that it is more blessed to give than to receive, so why is it hard for us to grasp Jesus words when he said, “ Sell all your goods, give it to the poor and follow me…” Again in Acts 2: 45 it speaks of the followers of Christ selling all and giving it to any in need but what of the disciple of today?

Noel Castellanos... Christianity Today article

Remember Noel Castellanos being here in Indy in February for our CCDA/TransformIndiana meeting? This week he showed up in Christianity Today in an article that will rock the way we do church. Definitely cool. Recall, Noel will be among other great city impacters coming in November for CCDA Indy 2005. [check out their CCDA Blog]

[excerpted from Christianity Today's featured articles this month]

In Divided by Faith: Evangelicals and the Problem of Race in America (2000), sociologists Michael O. Emerson and Christian Smith argued that much of the racial dysfunction in the American church today is the result of an individualized theological worldview that blinds white evangelicals to certain societal injustices. The book's shocking assertion stirred debate and became a paradigm-shifting read for many evangelical leaders

[hat-tip, Rudy Carrasco... UrbanOnramps.com]

[This particular issue of CT is a 'must-read' for all city impacters. And IMHO it will become a classic, as it's definitely thought-provoking, and may even offend our traditional experience of 'doing church'. While it has long been a core part of the culture & training at Crossroads Bible College, when you have major (white) players like Bill Hybels questioning his first 25 years of ministry, you know God is working in unbelievable ways to pull the Church together. ...Neil]
