What if Following Jesus isn’t Primarily About Beliefs or Actions?

By |February 23rd, 2015|

I’m intrigued by the fact that, in spite of my explanation that this project is more about delving into who we are and what we do, rather than focusing as much on what we think or believe, many people are eager to distill the “Jesus journey” down to making a specific set of claims for […]

What Does it Really Mean to Follow Jesus?

By |February 21st, 2015|

Four out of five Americans claim to be Christians. That’s more than a quarter billion people in the United states alone who claim, in one way or another, to follow Jesus. But what does that really mean?

By |November 17th, 2014|

Being a Christian, by definition, means we endeavor to follow Jesus. But few, if any, of us does it, really. I mean all the way. As Shane Claiborne famously once said, Jesus ruined his life. Once he went all in on what he felt God was calling him to do, everything in his life – all […]
