I have just met with Pastor Jin Kim and twelve of his church’s
members here at Buvton on the 15th of March. Curtiss DeYoung introduced
us. Pastor Kim represents the Church of All Nations in Minneapolis. It
is a Presbyterian church that envisions a Church that belongs to all
people and not just as a multi-cultural church. I recommend this place
as a learning opportunity of significance for congregations that
envision such a church for all God’s people. You can visit them at www.cando.org.
‘Brian McLaren ‘n bekende leiersfiguur uit die VSA besoek ons 22 en
23 Maart. Hy is in gesprek met ‘n baie wye verskeidenheid mense in die
VSA en internasionaal rondom die groter ekonomiese en etiese kwessies
wat die Westerse wêreld tans voor staan. In kerklike kringe is hy
omtrent al deur elke grott denominasie genader vir konsultasie. Sy
boeke is beste verkopers. Ek skryf van hulle voor vir al my studente’
(Jurgens Hendriks). Julle kan meer van Brian McLaren leer by www.crcc.org en www.emergentvillage.org.

Spirit Garage at www.spiritgarage.org.
Spirit Garage is a Christian faith community that gathers in the Uptown
area of Minneapolis. The people of Spirit Garage come from all kinds of
religious and not-so-religious backgrounds. They maintain financial and
official ties with Lutheran Church (ELCA) throught their pastor and
their sponsor congregation, Bethlehem Lutheran of South Minneapolis.
‘What we do at Spirit Garage may or may not be what many people would
call Lutheran; nevertheless, we find that the connection to the larger
church is helpful’.
Dit is duidelik dat ons mekaar oor die wêreld heen nodig he tom te onderskei waarop ons gestuurde roeping neerkom.
