Get Ready for Changemaking
Next week is Holy week, when we commemorate events that changed the world. Jesus’ radical and subversive walk into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday ended with his even more radical walk towards the Cross on Friday. However that was not really the end.
At the center of the gospel story is not crucifixion, but resurrection; not the Cross, but the new world that Jesus’ sacrifice brought into being. This walk of Holy week is preparing us to live in God’s radical new resurrection world of love and caring and sharing. Are you ready?
Join the Changemaking Celebration
As a special part of our preparation, we are making Tom Sine’s new book, Live Like You Give a Damn! Join the Changemaking Celebration, available for pre-order at the special discount price of $14.99 until April 16th!
Live Like You Give a Damn! brings the very good news that God is raising up a new generation, largely outside the church, that is bringing impressive change to the lives of our neighbors locally and globally through innovative forms of social enterprise and community empowerment.
The even better news is that those of us within the church can join this changemaking celebration and discover creative new ways God can use our mustard seeds to make a more remarkable difference than we ever imagined possible.
In this book Tom suggests practical ways you can join those who are creating their best communities, their best world, and in the process, their best lives. These innovators know that, in a world changing at warp speed, following Jesus is a “design opportunity” — to create lifestyles that are simpler and more sustainable—and to throw better parties along the way. Why would anyone want to settle for less and miss the best?
