Hopeful Imagination

Christian congregations, like just about everything else in our culture, are undergoing tremendous change. That’s not a huge revelation. Almost everyone involved with congregations agrees with that statement, because we live with that reality. One of the central changes for congregations today is that they are no longer the center of social and cultural life in most communities. Today, depending on where you live, churches are somewhere between slightly off center and all the way at the margins of centers of social influence in their communities. Perhaps no group of churches has experienced this shift more dramatically than “Old First” churches.

  1. Hello,

    My name in the Lord is brother Jon.

    I have compiled a collection of Bible quotes – “Red Letter” quotes and quotes from Paul, Peter and John. The resulting little book, which I call the Little Brown Bible, is a condensed New Testament reader with 409 quotations of Jesus and highlights from the letters of Paul, John, James and Peter, sorted thematically in twenty-eight themes. It is envisioned as a string of Biblical pearls, from faith to prayer, from love to salvation. Pure Jesus, distilled drop by golden drop into a concentrate of Christian goodness, ready for inspiration, reflection and devotion.

    The book has its own website, LittleBrownBible. com, where it is available as an ebook for a 2 dollar donation. It is not yet in print.

    I would like to make it avaliable to Nurturing Faith for free.
    Thank you for spreading the Word.

    God bless you.

    brother Jon
