Thursday reflection, week 4

October 24, 2006

It was helpful to hear Ryan talk about transforming powers and practices in terms of how Jesus went about doing so. I was struck by the comment, “Jesus showed that he could resist the powers—he showed that the powers were malleable.” I often do not expect to see long-standing powers and entrenched practices change. I am challenged by Jesus’s model that revealed that the powers were “malleable.”  

I also appreciated Ryan’s response to the question someone asked in class about Ryan’s experience with attending a traditional mainline church at this time.
