How can we nurture loving families and practice radical discipleship? How can we be in today’s consumer culture but not tamed by it? My family lives in two worlds, striving to follow the radical Jesus while still being shackled to consumerism, affluence and busyness. Maybe you are too. We are the tribe of the semi-transformed, the halfway-there, the partially-free. We want to live more transformatively, but we’ve made important life commitments—meaningful vocations, good marriages, growing families, home mortgages, community involvements—that we don’t intend to break.
Is there any hope for sorry half-disciples like us? Luckily, yes. God knows our hearts. God created us, inconsistent and imperfect, to be just as we are, and expects us to love our families and seek to walk the Jesus Way.
What kind of a better “good life” might we embody in America today—one that is better for us and our world? Come join the family discussion--there is a journey of doing and undoing to begin. The first thing we need to do is come to the wilderness to clear the cobwebs and reclaim our incredible, wild potential as beloved children and families of God.
