Prayer for the Week

posted by xscot mcknight

Almighty God, you have built your Church upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone: Grant us so to be joined together in unity of spirit by their teaching, that we may be made a holy temple acceptable to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Hello Scott,
Couldn’t find your email address.
I have a favor to ask you, Just prayerfully consider it for me. I’m not seeking anything but the welfare and future of Christianity. I already know there’s little, if anything, for me to gain financially for publishing a book. My name is not that well known and my audience is not that broad. The reality is financial gain will not happen. But I feel very strongly about the ideals and principles in this book and the need of it finding its way into the hands of church leaders and potential future leaders currently working in attractional churches.
The book is finished. It is short, concise titled Missio Dei : in the crisis of christianity. It was just recently released by the publisher (currently the publisher is the only point of sale–but by the middle of this month it will be on all the online bookstores).
As one of the teachers at Off The Map Live Conference in Seattle this November I plan to have the book there both promotingand selling it.
Their has been a pre-pubication review by a number of men and women whose names you would be familiar with and all have highly recommended the work. Alan Hirsch wrote a splendid back cover blurb, Michael Frost wrote the Foreword for the book and Sally Morgenthaler praised the book. These are just a few. I could send a list of names (you would recognize all of them) and their praise for this new work. The book is short (116 pages) and concise but very clear in what must be done for the attractional church to transition into the future and why. This is the target audience
My question: would you be willing to mention the book on your blog or do a short promo to help me get the word out. I can send you the book in a PDF as soon as –now. It’s an easy read.
I pray you’ll help me get the word out! Please let me know. Looking forward to hearing from you.

I’m reading your book Praying With The Church and it’s eye-opening. I actually told a friend about it and she’s like, “I knew Muslims prayed set prayers, but I’ve never heard of Christians doing that.”
I’m only about a third through it, but so far so good!

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
