|Cruising the Gospel|
It's one of the reasons there have been so few posts on Journeys of Heart and Mind recently. So here's what I've been doing and why.
Cruising the Gospel sprang from a desire to focus more on the person, words and actions of Jesus. To this end I've been reading a short passage every day and writing some notes on what I'm discovering.
If you'd like to join me why not read along and leave comments with your own thoughts?
Forgotten Ways - Alan Hirsch in The Forgotten Ways tells us that making Jesus the centre of all we are and do is an essential element for rapid and spontaneous church growth. This is not just a matter of studying his life, it's not enough to know about him; we need to live him and breathe him and be deeply affected by him from moment to moment.
Not only that, Alan has concluded that having Christ at the centre is just one of six essential strands that we in the West have forgotten (although they remain latent in all of us and can be reactivated).
For each of the six he suggests things that we can do to influence our thinking in useful ways. Cycling through the gospels is one of these.

- Other than cycling through the gospels, what else might you do to keep Jesus central?
- Why not take a trial run in Matthew 16:13-28?
