For this week only, we are streaming a 12 minute video interview of Fr Michael and me for free at Act3 Network. I respect Fr Michael a ton, and we really enjoyed this conversation about spiritual direction, The Examen, and what happens when a Jesuit Priest shows up at Willow Creek Church. Check it out…
Beyond the video, I am thrilled to introduce you to John Armstrong and his Act 3 Network. For the last 30+ years, John has been a leading voice of mission-ecumenism: the idea that unity among the whole church is central to spreading Christ’s kingdom to the ends of the earth. I’ve honestly never met anyone doing more to intelligently and humbly build a bridge between Protestants and Catholics, and I’ve learned so much from him. John is the real deal and has paid a huge personal price for giving his life to this work.
If you’re interested (and I really hope you are!), here are three ways to explore and learn more…
(1) Explore the Act3 Network website. They tell the story and share great resources.
(2) Last week, ABC ran this story about John and Act 3. (They even included a couple clips of me. Ha!) Here’s the show…
(3) Read John Armstrong’s incredible book: “Your Church is Too Small“. Why unity in Christian mission is vital to the future of the church.
May we all become bridge-builders today in our thoughts, words, and actions.
Grace and peace,
