ROB BELL: BACK STORY TO "THE LORD'S TABLE"

(google image)


Once in a while I'll hear something that is crucial to the Christian faith take on new meaning and depth and wonder. This happened this past Sunday as Julie and I heard Rob Bell of Mars Hill Bible Church, Grandville, MI, speak about the Eucharist, or Communion, or the Lord's Table.

Evangelicalism has a penchant for flattening everything out; of ironing the wonder out of the faith; of bleaching out the mystery in order to get a good, analytical grasp on things. Rob in a clear and simple talk resurrected the wonder and mystery and impact of the Lord's Table.

I hope you will take time to hear Rob's talk. I'd be interested in your comments.

that was an excellent take on the communion table.

Thank you for posting it.

(I also benefited from hearing Donald Miller's talk, "God is Fathering Us")

I love this. I'm a mainline pastor who knows that evangelicalism isn't the only culprit.
