Johnny Baker on his blog site (see the blogs panel on the left) highlighted this very interesting article by Lowell Sheppard who lives in Japan about the ‘non-church movement’. In essence this makes the everyday-ness of life the primary context for living the Christian life rather than the Church. For those of us struggling to make sense of the apparent dualism between being a Christian at church and being a Christian the rest of the time, Lowell’s observations concerning the ‘non-church movement’ in Japan provide a refreshing context for reflection.
Lowell, who I knew when he was Director of British Youth for Christ, writes from a depth of experience that few of us can match, not all of it easy. Check it out.
