Makes You Think

I'm not that into Rob Bell, I just recently started looking at some of his stuff. However I came across this quote recently that really makes me stop and think. I thought it could do the same for others as well. So here it is...what do you think ?

Can you imagine what would happen if a group of people with untold resources, passion and energy started asking the question, "How do we hear the cry of the oppressed?". What if they were actually willing to wade into the cultural, economic, racial, global and personal issues involved without fear, with the confidence that no matter how painful, messy and volatile it got, Jesus would guide them the whole way?

You'd have some church on your hands.
- Rob Bell

hey man...I have done them in the past, but now I'm not sure with my new role. It would depend on the date and details of the retreat.

As I read this quote I am reminded of a book called Five Smooth Stones (amazing by the way) and reminded of the civil rights movement and a group of people who were willing to face death because they knew what they were fighting for!

As Christians we should wade through it all with "confidence that no matter how painful....Jesus would guide 'us' the whole way..." because we know what we are fighting for...
