Growing in Faith Book Club, Uniting Church Australia

Some Circle Members are reading Keeping Christianity Weird by Mike Frost.

Circle Advocate Rev. Ann Perrin reflects on this quote:
“Richard Beck says, the eccentric Kingdom doesn’t claim territory over against the world. The eccentric Kingdom doesn’t erect walls to create a gated community…The eccentric Kingdom is the embedded, pilgrim, landless, possessionless, homeless, sojourning, itinerant missionary community called and commissioned to live lives of radical service and availability to the world.”

  • I have been reflecting on the itinerant nature of the church and how my local community see themselves as anything but itinerant. Do you think this is a good descriptor of how the church needs to think of itself for today?
