Chris Smith and I co-led a session at this year’s Missional Learning Commons in Fort Wayne on “Eucharistic Economics,” or “Crucial Practices for Deeper Churches.” Hearing the stories of what his church community has done in the areas of neighborhood development, hospitality, and care for the poor.
Chris, who created and edits the immensely helpful Englewood Review of Books, has written and released a free e-book on the topic called Growing Deeper in our Church Communities: 50 Ideas for Connection in a Disconnected Age. I just read it this morning and forwarded a copy of it to the team that is developing the missional communities of our church plant. It is a helpful, practical tool to get missional imagination started in any community.
Download the free e-book here, and if you like it, spread the word.
And hey, Scot McKnight liked it, too!
