moby on christianity – relevant magazine

Moby was interviewed in Relevant magazine. I found this question, and his response especially interesting.

In an interview with RELEVANT a couple years ago, you talked about some negative views on the state of Christianity. Do you think anything has changed?

It’s hard, because I think that individual Christians are quietly doing amazing things; they’re ministering to the poor and sick. The quiet, humble Christians seem like the ones who are really trying to walk in the footsteps of Christ. It’s the loud, arrogant, judgmental, obnoxious Christians who seem to give the rest of Christianity a really bad name.

When I see religious leaders being judgmental and arrogant, I want to pull them aside and say, “You’re supposed to work out your faith in humility and fear and trembling.” You’re supposed to approach everything in a spirit of nonjudgmentalism and compassion and love and forgiveness, and I don’t see a lot of evidence of humility and love and faith on the part of leaders. I find that to be really dispiriting.

i’ll pray for you (that is, if i remember)

Last night, Libby told me something that I didn’t know about her…

She said that if she tells someone she will pray for them, she prays for them RIGHT AWAY – because she knows herself and she might not think of it later. I though that was brilliant.

I get so annoyed with myself when I tell someone I’ll pray for them and then forget. How lame?

I’ve realized lately that it can be so refreshing to pray aloud with friends. Why are we so hesitant to pray with and for each other in the everyday circumstance of life?

swerve blog – the challenge of ministry friendships

There’s a great post today from Criag Groeschel, about including our spouses in the inner dialog of ministry.  I asked a question about how to develop meaningful prayer times with your spouse.  Libby and I have always been challenged to have deep prayer times together.  It’s something we’re working on.

I'm a family man at heart. I admit my world revolves around my wife Libby and our 3 hooligans...Eli, Eden and Silas. They are easy to love. I'm trying to learn to love the rest of you. I also like to ask questions.
