We had invoked any variety of authors residing and useless, and had spanned spirituality, management, schooling, philosophy, ecclesiology, or even cosmology. We heard from Augustine and Barth, Jim Wallis and Dallas Willard, referencing chaos and tradition. somebody had even shared an historic koan!
Why . . . that is it. Why no longer a roving, eclectic dictionary that's either ridiculously present and specific, and while generally inclusive, achieving again to Augustine and St. Benedict. Why no longer write the ABCs of the rising and missional dialog: this can be Wishful pondering (Buechner) meets A for Abductive (McLaren and candy) meets Soul Survivor (Yancey). and perhaps there's only a contact of Brian McLaren in A beneficiant Orthodoxy.

The ideas are basic: not more than 5 phrases in step with letter; names and personalities can take place on both sides, hooked up to a definition or as referencing a notice or idea, and whereas the final curiosity is theological, the point of interest is existence and venture, now not theory.

Leave your baggage at the back of, climb aboard and sign up for a trip of exploration that would increase, problem, and produce a grin in your face.
