Exiled Community

Welcome to those who made your way from my old blog to this new one.  I’ve gone through a two year hiatus from blogging and I think its time to start writing again.  My goal is to write 1-2 times a week- with much of the focus being my ministry at Hope Church and as Campus Minister at Wesley College.

Some may wonder about the blog title.  I’m a huge fan of Micheal Frost and Alan Hirsch’s book, Exiles: Living Missionally in a Post-Christian Culture.  In the book, Frost and Hirsch talk about Christians living in exile in a secular world.  I’m aware of this as I strive to live in the world- but not of the world.  This blog will be a place to dialogue about the living intentionally as followers of Jesus in a secular world.  At times, we feel like we’re in exile as our Christian beliefs and culture is foreign in the larger world- the reality is that we live in exile in community- and get to journey through this together.  That’s what this blog is about…living in exile together!

I look forward to getting back on the blogging horse, introducing you to some of my blogging friends, and having some great dialogue!
