“Part of what we need to be doing as missional people is creating dissonance and dissatisfaction among our friends and neighbors so that we can realize together that the problem is bigger than can be solved by a nice house and an SUV.”
You need to read this post, and in fact, the whole series that starts with this post. As best as I can describe it, it’s about Suburbia and what the Gospel (literally, “good news”) of Jesus has to say specifically to the issues that arise in the Suburbs. Basically, There’s 9 or 10 parts to it, but it’s really worth a read. ScottB has a lot of really thought provoking things to read, and then think about, and then talk about with people. Good stuff for sure.
