Denominational Peace Fellowships

Now to our ears, “denomination” rhymes with “abomination”; we’ll be happy when the post-denominational transition is complete and we’ll no longer have to worry about the human-created institutions that divide sisters and brothers in Christ. But insofar as they’re going to be with us for another decade or two, you should see what is going on in these denominations with regards to honoring Jesus, our Prince of Peace. A lot of the nitty-gritty work of creative, non-violent engagement with the powers is going on in these fellowships. Support them.

Despite popular belief, slavery is alive and well today–stronger than it’s ever been. Nonetheless! Through heightened spiritual awareness and action, human trafficking could become a thing of the past.

The Creation In Christ

Thankfully, the “disposable earth” mindset (that had more to do with Western consumerism than authentic Christian faith) is disappearing, as believers are realizing that whether Jesus is returning next Thursday or not, He wants us to cherish and steward His Creation. Here are some of the lamentably few folks who are offering Christ-centered reflection on environmental problems and solutions.

Our Sisters In Christ

It is a spiritual fact that women are free in Jesus Christ, and are free to express themselves in the Christian community, in family, and the world as a whole. Unfortunately, due to lack of attentiveness to the Spirit, and lack of context from the Scripture, many in the Christian world wish to minimize this freedom. We think this occurs at great expense to our sisters in the Lord, and we can no longer keep silent on the matter. Here are some resources that will benefit you, whether you are female or male.

FIND A CHURCH

Here you can find a pretty decent church. Made of flawed people certainly, but working to overcome flawed premises. What is “decent” IOHO (In Our Humble Opinion)s? Well, a church where knowing Jesus is the central focus, where grace is lived and where authenticity is cherished. And, hopefully, where fully participatory body life and community can grow. We realize that this is a tall order and we certainly haven’t visited all of these churches to be able to personally endorse them. However, we’ve been around the block a few times (putting in about 10 denominations between the two of us), so we’ve sifted through the ones that look like a nightmare even on the Web.

Find A House Church: Many of these sites have articles and content; some are simply “yellow page”-like entries. Since most house churches don’t name themselves, they’re linked here by city.

Post Church?

As finding and forming faith continues to morph in the 21st century, we’re becoming aware of a phenomenon that has always been with us: Christians, both passionate and puzzled, who are moving beyond existing church structures of any kind. Dubbed “basement church” and “subconscious church” by some and “de-churched” by others, here is a concise but significant collection of sites exploring this reality.
