Thanks to my son Christopher Mikkelson for inspiring me to start re-connecting with what is going on with Shane Claiborne who I am so completely in alignment with. What I appreciate most about Shane is that he is a bridge builder, but he doesn’t compromise. This interview is so encouraging http://www.patheos.com/Resources/Additional-Resources/How-to-Derail-the-New-Monasticism-An-Interview-with-Shane-Claiborne
My main involvement with government was to support Ron Paul in being president and to encourage the freedom movement. I’ve had a few other experiences, but for the most part I see value in following Jesus in my in relating to and working with my family, friends, and community. Listening to this conversation is inspiring me to re-think my involvement. The verdict is not yet in for me. But I really like hearing three of my favorite evangelical Christians having a dialogue which is aired on public radio.
I have re-connected with the Federation of Intentional Communities website http://www.ic.org and I found this interesting article http://www.ic.org/pnp/cdir/2000/16christian.php
