Borrowing a metaphor from Celtic Christianity, Jon Huckins and Rob Yackley prompt believers to seek out "thin places"---spaces where heaven and earth are thinly separated, providing opportunities for missional community and practice. In six sessions, they explore what it means to listen, submerge, invite, contend with, imagine, and entrust ourselves and neighbors to God. 160 pages, softcover with DVD from Beacon Hill.
While praying for his community on the Island of Iona, the Celtic monk St. Columba described his experience as a thin place- a location where heaven and earth seemed only thinly separated.In the same way, God's kingdom is being realized here on earth with stories of restoration and redemption. Our God moved into the neighborhood, seeking to invite us into his story of reconciliation, and commission us to missionally engage our neighborhoods with the good news of the kingdom.Joining the concepts of monasticism and mission, author Jon Huckins will walk you through six postures of missional formation: listening, submerging, inviting, contending, imagining, and entrusting. As you begin to employ these postures, become apprentices of Jesus who are committed to living in and experiencing the thin places.Through Thin Places, create a fertile soil to commune with God, live in deep community with others, and extend the good news of the kingdom in your local contexts.
