I am still digesting Robert Farrar Capon’s Kingdom, Grace and Judgment. It is an interesting look at the parables of Jesus from an Episcopal priest and comes to some incredible conclusions that you wouldn’t expect. I’ll warn you it isn’t always easy reading, but the gems throughout are incredible. Here’s another:
Good stuff! I find it fascinating that the needs of institutions and the demands of religion fit together so well. It’s sad really. It so easily takes our passion for Jesus and wears us out in irrelevant activities. I can’t imagine people defending the religion that 21st Century Christianity has become. There is so much more life in simply living alongside other brothers and sisters sharing the life of Jesus.On an unrelated note, I’ll be in New Mexico this Memorial Weekend hanging out with some brothers and sisters I’ve been corresponding with over the past few years, but haven’t had the chance to meet yet. I’ll be in Albuquerque on Thursday and Friday and in Capitan on Saturday and Sunday. I hope you have a blessed weekend wherever you are.
