Brian McLaren was with us this week and was most impressed with the appeal to give financially. We’ll come back to this relationship between movements and institutions, but he said one of the major failures of movements is they don’t grow up, get responsible, mature and become sustainable. Unsustainable movements always dissipate and turn control back to institutions. Financial sustainability is one of the most crucial factors in the shape of the future of church, religion, especially innovative faith communities like ours.
He also said he loved the tone and the language of the Pledge Drive, because it doesn’t sound like a superstitious, guilt-laden, religious appeal, but a responsible non-profit funding request.
There are several easy ways to give!
We are a misfit faith community that gathers in DeLand on Sundays at 5pm. Come as you are.
We value highly the metaphor of journey. We’re different people from different places and backgrounds, representing an intergenerational community, and we’ve traveled different paths. So, we agree not to make assumptions about the person across from us, next to us, or in conversation with us. We challenge ourselves to be sensitive, knowing this community includes a diverse group of people from life-long followers of Jesus, to people who are just now open to the idea that God might exist. We strive to avoid offense, ask good questions, articulate and explain our responses. We don’t assume fluency in bible, spirituality, or Church language, because we believe the message of Jesus is not for Christianity, but for humanity. So, we do everything in the spirit of love and grace.
