|Resource text:||The Underground Church: Reclaiming the Subversive Way of Jesus by Robin Meyers|
The Underground Church proposes that the faithful recapture the spirit of the early church with its emphasis on what Christians do rather than what they believe. Robin Meyers proposes that the best way to recapture the spirit of the early Christian church is to recognize that Jesus-following was and must be again subversive in the best sense of the word because the gospel taken seriously turns the world upside down. He offers a vision for the future rooted in the past, proposing that the church of the future must leave doctrinal tribalism behind and seek a unity of mission instead.
Cynthia recently read this book and felt greatly inspired by it because it is a solid blueprint for FHC’s goal to become a Beloved Community. She is seeking other people who would like to read and discuss the implications of these ideas for us. The time and format (in-person or online) of the meeting(s) will be determined by the people who wish to attend. Please sign up before September 10 if you would like to join the discussion. Cynthia will contact all who express interest to determine what is the best meeting time and format for the greatest number of people.
