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