Sorry I have been absent here. Hopefully you have been following us on the other blog.
Two things that are rockin' me and I thought you should know...
First, Colossians Remixed: Subverting the Empire. One of the best books I have read in a long time. I would say it has had as much impact on and resonation with me as when I first read A New Kind of Christian. Wow. Seriously. Wondering how to read a letter of Paul's (someone I seem to have problems with) in a postmodern world? Wondering what a movement of God in the now might look like? Had assumptions about the Empire not being the Ultimate narrative? The the US is not the savior of the world? Then you might just love this book. A bit on the philosophical-sociological side, it is an incredible, thoughtful read.
Second, Coldplay - X & Y. Wow. So many good tracks. We downloaded it before we left to Asia from iTunes. Haven't really given it a good listen (Some of our housemates hate Coldplay and U2! Ouch!) until now. Beautiful stuff... really.
Okay, we will be back in Oceanside in about 10 days. Much to reflect on then. Cheers friends!
