A break from the "innovation" series is needed, at least by me.
I've read some interesting tomes the last few weeks, among them unChristian and Pagan Christianity.
I've been writing a morning devotional pretty much every day at the ZOE Group / New Wineskins Daily Life of Worship blog.
(For the moment, our main ZOE Group and New Wineskins sites are down. Yet, through messages on a separate e-mail subscription system and the New Wineskins blog, we've been able to get out the message about the tragedy that has befallen our Executive Director Eric Noah-Wilson's family, and hundreds have already responded with e-mail messages of prayer and hope to him.)
All of these things in my life -for very different reasons - have formed a question in my mind and heart that I think has been nudging at many others within our faith for a long time now:
Could we do better for the cause of Christ if we saw Christianity less as a religion and more as an identity?
