Liquid Church, communicating the gospel

Liquid Church is both the name of a book by Pete Ward (worth a read) &  an American Church.

When I used to commute to work (15 min walk, 20 min bus journey, 30 min in coffee shop). I used to listen to some of their sermon series. I found them helpful as they usually have some great illustrations to go with the talks and don't shy away from talking about sex or money, surely two under represented areas in most churches?

One of the things they used to have on their website was a guide to communicating the gospel (it is no longer there so you will have to trust me on this). It went like this:

"We  know what time it is and what to do. We may not be of the world but we are certainly in it and trying to make a difference".

A recipe for communicating the gospel to a post-modern world:
  • Holy Bible
  • The Newspaper (including Art and Movies)
  • Blender
  • Puree
  • Pray
  • Serve
