I keep hearing about the Christian Conversation. New voices are now being heard in a wide range of mediums. Between talk radio, books,tv programs, and now the internet we are getting covered in words. Jim Wallis points out
with no small amount of glee how the conversation is starting to spread and more people are talking about social justice. Even his new label of Red Letter Christians
points to the fact that there is a lot of talk going around. I agree with him. The conversation does need to change, but what about action? Christ was more than just some words he spoke. He lived them out. Whether it's feeding the five thousand, healing the sick, and even dying on the cross. I am in a small group and we are trying to come up with a way to better serve our community. We've been talking about it. If we don't do something soon it may just die on the vine. Wes in his blog shares a recent experience
at a pizzaria that is doing just that. Several years ago the church I was attending at the time found a homeless man sleeping on the lawn. The police were there to escort him off the property. He had no shirt or shoes. One of the other members standing near me commented, "Can't 'insert name of ministry here' help that man?"
Here's another example of a man of Action. Mr. T
helps people to not be fools.
