Just listened to this audiobook by Craig Gross (founder xxxchurch.com plus other cool stuff). The book makes a clear argument that, as Christians, we ought to spend much less time in our ivory towers, and more in the gutter where people are (following the example of Jesus).
“Don’t blame the dark for being dark.
Blame the light for not shining on the dark.”
Great material there. He uses the examples of his own xxxchurch.com work, the work of an outreach discussion group that met at Hooters and others. Provocitave stuff, but good for the soul. Very good for the soul.
