paying it forward, also called "the gospel"

As a believer that the Gospel is a plan, put into motion by God, not only to answer the question of eternity, but also to solve the social evils that plague us now, I found the film Pay It Forward particularly poignant and can’t help but believe that it was a great tool that the church totally missed.

We’re discussing it tonight at Streetwise as an introduction to the Gospel.

A great use of a good film. How was the response? I enjoyed the book so much more.

Speaking of books...
...tag you're it.

1. Pick up the nearest book, of at least 123 pages 2. Turn to page 123 3. Count down 5 sentences 4. Post the next three sentences 5. Tag 5 more people

Add it to one of your future posts. I look forward to seeing what you are reading.

I probably won't be passing this on, but I will answer it.

"Newbigin is clear, even eloquent about this. He stongly affirms the priesthood of all believers and the role of leadership in the church to cultivate this priesthood among all the members. Such a priesthood, he writes, 'has to be exercised in the world.'"

From Models of Contextual Theology by Stephen B. Bevans

Btw, boo on you for being "that guy" who says "I read the book"! : )
