Joe Thorn’s church in Chicago (Redeemer Fellowship) has started a Theology Pub where Christians and non-Christians can come together and converse honestly about spirituality. Lord willing, this gathering, and others like it, will reach those who don’t know Jesus in a very relevant, non-intimidating way.
So, I’m in Chicago this week to help launch spiritual movements on some community college campuses in the area. So far it’s been a great week. Besides doing ministry things, Chicago is an awesome city with so much to do and see. We can’t possibly see it all in a week. The most frustrating thing here is that this city has 9.3 million people and it seems that everyone drives a car all day long, non-stop and that rush hour is anytime I’m in the road. I love the city. I love people. I love diversity. The traffic will take some getting used to. If I lived here, I might have a car, but I wouldn’t use it. It wouldn’t be worth it. The hardest part is trying to get to a campus that is 20 miles away and it takes an hour, no matter which way I go. Even to get across downtown, perhaps just four miles or so, might take 30 minutes. Oh well, that’s Chicago for ya.
Thanks for praying for us. God is doing cool things here.
Lord willing, I’ll have a Good Friday and Easter meditation up on the blog soon.
