2 Books and 1 Conference call
1. The Global House Church Movement arrived a few days ago. Canadian Rad Zhero has done a good job is writing a well-rounded full-bodied yet compact little book on house church. He covers history, theology, practice, and almost everything you need to know. I feel the title of the book is a little enthusiastic for the global coverage he gives – I expected to be a lot wiser about international house church movements and instead found myself reading about movements that i already know of. Still, its a worthwhile book and at least as comprehensive and balanced as any other book on house church out there right now. And if you live in Canada, you probably already have this book.
2. An Army of Ordinary People. This is the book I mentioned yesterday in My Thoughts from a Spa. Author Felicity Dale gave me the book a few months ago in Austin, Texas. Earlier that day, she had been packing up 1500 of these books to send over to Rick Warren for the hurricane victims. As I have said, its a good book and there are plenty of stories of ordinary people who found themselves caught up in this movement, transforming their living room into a strategic lighthouse for their neighborhood. Not super qualified people. Not superheroes. Just ordinary people becoming a part of something extra-ordinary.
3. A house church related conference call on Monday Jan 9, 9pm Central Time. You are invited to jump in if you want to be a part of the house church conversation in North America. Hosted by House2House and Dawn North America. Details and downloadable Powerpoint are here.
