a new blog...for Zak

I have not posted in a long time...since before Christmas...and now it is past my birthday.

If the blogging world were an ice cream shop I would be the cup of water they rinse the scoop out in.

Since my last blog I have gotten a new job.

I am now the High School Pastor at New Life Evangelical Free Church in Aurora. There are some great students in my group and it is my hope to not mess them up to bad before they go to college.

We are getting ready to start a new series on injustice and poverty and looking at what the Christian response to this should be. It is a very different response than the American way.

For more on this subject you should check on Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne. If you are like me any you need a visual aid in looking for books as you walk the aisles in your local Barnes and Nobel you are in luck. I have gone the extra mile and stolen an image of the cover of the above reference book. Here you go...

Have a good one

Another World is Possible said...

Something else you should check out in teaching the youngin's is the Another World is Possible DVD series. It's a multimedia project by Shane Claiborne and Jamie Moffett (co-founders of the Simple Way) that emerged in response to their belief that things are not right in the world, and that they don't have to stay that way. There are three DVD's, one on war, one on poverty, and one on creation. You can find out more about them at www.awip.us.
