In this episode, I explore the Prophet as "Activist" by looking at the story of Tabitha from the early church and identifying the three main practices of Activists as they pursue restoration in the neighborhood.
Series Summary: In Ephesians 4, the Apostle Paul mentions 5 gifts for the church - Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Shepherd, and Teacher (APEST). Over the past decade of missional church and church planting conversations, Alan Hirsch, Mike Breen, J.R. Woodward and others have done some good work towards expanding our understanding of these "Ministries," "Equippers," or "Intelligences." But what do we learn about these gifts when we replace APEST, when we explore what these 5 gifts look like in the neighborhood

Chris Heuertz joins me to talk about contemplative activism and community, including:

  • The one thing church planters need to know when starting a community
  • Why solitude, silence, and stillness are so critical for our world right now
  • Why some people are surrounded by community but still so lonely
  • Why some Christians are scared of contemplative practice
  • What Christian organizations need to learn about handling transitions
*Originally posted at theV3movement.org

Chris Heuertz, along with his wife, Phileena, is a founding partner of Gravity, a center for contemplative activism based in Omaha, Nebraska that helps people “to do good better” by hosting a weekly prayer sit, leading contemplative retreats and pilgrimages, providing spiritual direction, and facilitating Enneagram consultations. Prior to starting Gravity, the Heuertzes started and served for 20 years with Word Made Flesh, a non-profit organization that extends love and care to the most vulnerable in some of the world’s poorest slums, red light areas, and places of intense human suffering. Chris is the author of Unexpected Gifts: Discovering the Way of Community, which explores how the challenges of community, such as betrayal, failure, and doubt, can actually become unexpected gifts.

Series Summary: Parish church expressions are emerging in neighborhoods everywhere. Whatever they are called - neighborhood church plants, missional communities, neomonastic communities, faith-based social enterprises - these diverse expressions seem to exhibit five common signs as they join God’s renewal in their particular places. In this five part series, I explore the Five Signs of the Parish Movement:
Linking Across Parishes: Actively connecting with other Christian communities across parishes regionally and globally, we grow in mutual learning, friendship, and life giving partnership.
