Kinnon Goes Ultimate Fighter

Bill Kinnon addresses one of the consequences of “church celebrity culture.” In his recent post, “I Should Be Shocked,” Bill calls into question what some mean by missional and the unusual practices that occur when we get the notion wrong. At the very least, “missional” should be understood as “for people” in the name of Jesus participating in the mission of God. When we fail to treat people according to the commandment to love others we end up looking less and less like the Jesus we proclaim and more and more like, well, ourselves.

    Your subject line cracked me up.

    I do confess to having steam coming out of my ears when I read the story that prompted my post. Thanks for pointing to it.

    1. Bill,

      I always enjoy your writing. Also, I like the production of the Stetzer-Fitch 3 part video series. Would have love to heard the outtakes of those!

      Keep writing.

    We had a lot of fun with Ed and Dave. Two good guys at very different points on the missional compass. I count it a privilege to be able to call both of them friends.

    Thanks for the props.

    1. Yes, two really good guys. I know Ed well. I took an online course with David and enjoyed a couple of conversations and emails with him. It is a privilege to learn with these kind of Jesus people.
