BOOK ONLINE The Church as Movement BY J.R. Woodward – chernov–art.com
In August I received a copy of The Church As Movement Starting and Sustaining Missional Incarnational Communities by JR Woodward and Dan White Jr from their publisher Intervarsity Press I was excited to dig nto the book as I have known JR for a long time and I m regularly mpressed by his thoughts on church and faith When I first met JR he had recently transitioned from an ncredibly successful church plant on the campus of Virginia Tech to starting a cluster of neighborhood churches The Seventh Day in three different communitiesn Los Angeles Since that time he has been on the forefront of missiology and church planting n various contexts n the US and abroad While I am not familiar with Dan White I know that JR keeps company with many thoughtful The Devils Jug, the Crying Tree Me individuals who are serious about a fresh embodiment of whatt means to be a Christian I have enjoyed many long conversations with JR through the years about living a deep and fulfilling life of faith and leading others to do the same and I deeply appreciate his friendship his example and his words for fellow sojourners on the journey The layout of The Church As Movement was not what I expected Ramesses it to be When looking at the cover and skimming the pages this books not just laying out some new theory on church planting or comparing and contrasting styles of developing and cultivating faith communities although there The Irish Warrior is some of bothn Baby, Im Back! (Return to Redemption, its pages Rather the books meant to be a workbook and a framework for mission focused faith communities who are serious about facilitating transformation n their neighborhoods and the world As I read through each section I found myself laughing out loud at some metaphors and uietly nodding my head n agreement at the The Draining Lake (Inspector Erlendur ideas developed on the pages I readt as someone already aligned with the concepts laid out n the text JR and I have had many conversations although we have not been able to connect directly for a few years about how to facilitate growth of ndividuals and communities with a primary focus A Heros Welcome in depthThe books laid out as a series of chapter concepts and sub concepts with a series of reflective uestions at the end of each section The uestions are meant to help land concepts as well as perform self assessment of the reader and hisher faith community Each chapter s uestions drive toward discovering gaps and thinking through how to address potential pitfalls for an aspiring church planting team or existing faith community looking seriously at how they can aspire to be a sign a foretaste and an Finding Normal instrument of God s Kingdom come and will being done on earth ast s n heavenAre you looking for a personal or communal assessment tool for evaluating the strengths of your faith community Are you trying to think about how you can take the Good News of Jesus The Broken Sword into the world without being a clanging gong or without being obtuse Are you curious about how to think about shifting your thinking about faith from an extraction or attraction mindset to an embodied and missional mindset Do you want to learn about how to lead as a team and not with a CEO mindset Would you like to see your faith community developnto one that looks like the early church If you answered yes to any of these uestions or Haunted Houses if you just want to take a look at different approaches to living out a life of faithn community I believe you will appreciate The Church As Movement I hope you will give Charles Dickens it a read and thatt will stir your Christianity at the Crossroads
