Reflections on the past, present and future of life and faith.

An Introduction

Sustainable Traditions is an invitation to more deeply consider the trajectory of our life, faith and culture in these modern/post-modern times. In a time of great change such as our own, we must look long and hard at our assumptions, allegiances, and the patterns of belief and practice we are passing onto the next generations. Ideas have consequences and the original message of Jesus and God’s coming kingdom calls for radical change in our lives. Because the kingdom of God has no boundaries – and because “the earth is the Lord’s” the message here encompasses a broad scope of topics: farming, society, human politics, food, community, prayer, poetic imagination, Creation, sabbath, economics, family, etc…

Also, to our liberal and our conservative readers: there is not one angle presented here – but a prism approach that is sure to lay flame to sacred cows and idols of all stripes and affiliations. Our longing is for Christian communities that look like Jesus, and a world that is being overtaken by mustard seeds of redemption. The revolution will not be televised.

I welcome you to join the conversation.
