Passion
Good time at Oxford yesterday with Kenda Creasy Dean.
She spoke about passion and moralistic therapeutic deism!
Interesting stuff about how young people and the mainstream US church has reduced Christianity to moralistic therapeutic deism - its about being nice, feeling good, and God being around when you need him!
Anyway 2 questions/comments struck me:
- "Do we really need Jesus?" - does what we do depend on Christ? Jesus must be more than an example!
- Do we as adults in church practice the kind of faith we want our young people to have?

Ian has good notes, especially from part2. Sarah, Phil and Richard were also spotted, and I'm sure may post something too.

Check out Kenda's excellent books for more!
