I met Tom Sine, just about 10 years ago. We've spoken a few times on email since, and I wrote a recommendation for the back of his latest book, 'The New Conspirators' for it's UK print.
So it was a privilege to have Tom stay with us, and then speak to our church community yesterday. We were celebrating with a missions team from our church who had just got back from Sri Lanka, building a kids feeding station, amongst many other things.
It was so great to have Tom help us celebrate the nature and priority of 'missional' as someone who seems to embody that in his life so totally. Then Tom spoke to the current credit crunch crises and talked about ways we could imagine and live an alternative kingdom life.
You can find the MP3 from his talk yesterday at our church site, here.
