The Emerging Conversation: Unabridged: 5 Leaders are interviewed on the latest Worship Leader Mag online and the tallest, skinniest of the 5 is myself. Worth a read.
“I think the ”what“ of my mission might be greater than the ”who.“ Jesus came to seek and to save ”what“ was lost, not just ”who.“ And God is reconciling ALL things to himself and sharing this ministry with us. It is very possible that the pilgrimage of my family is a prophetic act that is helping to restore the gentle rule of God in this world in many areas, most of which will be unknown to me until I get to the other side.”
Andrew Jones (me) on the question “To whom is your mission?” More . .
Thats me in the corner, losing my religious books. Gosh – am i really losing my hair? No wonder i wear that stinkin’ hat all the time!
The other leaders are all good friends of mine and its an honor to be included next to them – Tony Jones, Dan Kimball, Karen Ward and Brian McLaren. I liked the interview process and the fact that they pretty much published everything we said. I slipped them the silly photo with me and all the books and they went with it.
Worship Leader published an article of mine in 2002 on alternative worship, but it was only on the paper version. Great to see this stuff online and linkable. Hope the link still works next month. Those who buy the mag will get to read the full article by Chuck Smith Jr on “What is Emerging?”. Thanks to everyone at Worship Leader for being good sports.
