I am preaching this month in our 8:45 service, with a series I'm calling "Keeping in Step with Jesus and His Mission." We have just completed a major undertaking with building a house as a part of the Fuller Center for Housing Building Blitz here in Shreveport. Our folks are extremely excited about participating in community renewal and we all have a taste to do more. It is my hope to challenge those in attendance, especially younger generations, to keep doing missional things, focusing on Jesus and living his kind of life in our city. As I am preparing for this week's segment of that series--"Foot-Functioning with Jesus"--I will be talking about what Jesus meant by "kingdom," what he was all about in this world and still now. I ran across this Slate article today on different views of Jesus. It's worth a read and gives a good perspective on how Jesus is viewed in our culture.
