The Road Church is an accepting community called to experience and to be God's presence everywhere. We believe that church happens wherever we are - at home, work, school, and play. We want to live into God's dream of a world where everyone and everything is made new. We want to love, serve, and give our lives to help make that happen.
"So, friends, every day do something
that won’t compute. Love the Lord.
Love the world. Work for nothing.
Take all that you have and be poor.
Love someone who does not deserve it...
Ask the questions that have no answers.
Invest in the millennium. Plant sequoias...
This poem of Berry's is challenging even 47 years later. It takes seriously the ways the world diminishes God of Life's way. But it takes even more seriously the resurrection and the fruit of practicing Resurrection Life.
In our days, how might we "Practice Resurrection"? Of the many ways we could name, one might be to pay attention to what we are looking at. "Finally sisters and brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think on those things." Philippians 4:8
We are looking at these things through the lens of the family-favorite youtube show Some Good News and its reminder that "No matter how hard things get, there is always good in the world." (John Krasinski)
Could the practice of seeing the good be one way to practice resurrection?
Expect the end of the world. Laugh.
Laughter is immeasurable. Be joyful
though you have considered all the facts...
Excerpts from Wendell Berry's Manifesto of The Mad Farmer's Liberation Front, 1973
