Idolatry and Discipleship...

My good friends Bill and Imbi Kinnon (who happen to be Canadian, but please don't hold that against them, or envy them - whichever the case may be) have this video interview with Chris Wright.  It's part of a larger work on leadership that's currently being edited.  I look forward to seeing the whole thing!

Chris Wright is my new hero.  His books The Mission of God and The Mission of God's People are fantastic and give language to what I know to be true.  He seems to be a real down-to-earth guy with an understanding of God's Heart and Mission.  Here Chris Wright repeats what I have said over and over and over. (So much so that people assume I'm a one-trick pony!) And that is: we need to - we must - we have to MAKE DISCIPLES.  The "transfer of the Faith" requires intentionality of investment in others.

Dear children, keep yourselves from idols. (1 John 5:21 NIV)

    Thanks for posting this and the kind words. (BTW It's freezing up here in the GreatWhite North.) We miss your face, bro.
