i am very happy that we have a day at cms in oxford with mark scandrette who has been a friend for years. i love what he has been up to in mission in san fransisco, his writing and the creativity and imagination and challenge he brings to pretty much everything he does. I first connected with him in the early years of discussing emerging church.
live free is on january 9th where mark will lead a workshop day exploring mission in very practical ways such as how do can you deal with your money and time in such a way as to be free to do what god has called you to. i think/hope it will be a blend of his thinking in the two books free and practicing the way of jesus – both of which are really good.
