Majoring in Brian McLaren
For the past couple of years I've taken a week and read or re-read books by a particular author of interest. (One would need six months to study the works of Walter Brueggemann...)It's been fun to go back and re-reread Kathleen Norris, Barbara Brown Taylor and Henri Nouwen this way (Nouwen took longer, too.)
This week,since I'm not preaching next Sunday, I'm reading and re-reading Brian McLaren's books, beginning with The Church on the Other Side. I think it will be a helpful author to learn from again as our congregation gets ready for a new year with new challenges and opportunities.
