Brian McLaren - DIscussion Questions
Brian McLaren challenges us to examine why the church is necessary today and invites us to imagine reasons why our congregation exists. For what purpose does your congregation exist?
We know how to have a strong Christian identity that’s hostile towards other faiths and we know how to have a weak Christian identity that is tolerant of other faiths. How can we develop a strong Christian identity that’s benevolent towards other faiths?
McLaren imagines that if Jesus were here today he would speak of The Kingdom of God as the Commonwealth of God, the Ecosystem of God or the Network of God. How would you describe the Kingdom of God today?
