Check out this clip from Shane Claiborne. You may disagree with some of his political views, but his new book and DVD material from the Economy of Love is great stuff – stuff we, the church, need to hear and do!
From the Publisher:
Tension, from the Economy of Love, explores being the hands and feet of Jesus in a broken world. Economy of Love is a 5 week video series with Shane Claiborne for small groups or any size church. Visit here for more info and http://bit.ly/eolonlinestore to buy the material.
Economy of Love will challenge individuals to join in community, journeying together as they begin to consider a new standard of living-a personal economic threshold oriented not around the size of a monthly paycheck, but around the value of enough.
In this five-week study, unpack what the patterns of God's kingdom look like compared to the patterns of our world. What is the value of enough, and how do we become more like God who is close to the poor, the hungry, the meek, and the merciful?
