Hi everyone -
It was suggested that we discuss some of the ideas from Dietrich Bonhoeffer's "The Cost of Discipleship" on Sunday March 28th. If you haven't read it, this is a very challenging book. Bonhoeffer writes in a very "point blank," "no bull" and "straight up" manner. A lot of what he says reminds me of what emergent folks are saying now, but I think he also levels some serious challenges that emergent folks should consider.
To prepare for the discussion, you could read the book online here (thanks for the link Angela). You could also download the audio book for free here, and listen to it on your way to work or as you walk around in the beautiful weather. Or I have a copy that anyone is welcome to borrow, and I'm sure the public library has several copies as well.
I especially am drawn to chapter 3, "Single Minded Obedience," but as always, anything is up for discussion.
