Brian McLaren

Posted by Al Hathaway Tuesday, March 16, 2010

The name of Brian McLaren may not be immediately recognizable to you, but he is one of the world of Christianity's controversial writers on the topic of the "emerging church." I had the opportunity to meet, talk with and hear him speak on Monday, March 15, 2010 at St. Mary's Seminary and University. He is correctly challenging the faith community on their interpretation of the meaning of Jesus Christ to our contemporary society. He is challenging how church is done. He is challenging the faith formation process. He suggests that Everything Most Change" the title of one of his best selling books. I have an autograph copy of this book and his recently released, "A New Kind of Christianity." I found his talk to be thought provoking. He asked the question that in the faith community you are "asking a person to come to church at an inconvenient time and to an inconvenient place; for what purpose and what value will they derive from the experience." I believe the questions he is posing are questions all those who are seriously about their faith must answer.
