Last week, hiked 29.1 miles over five days into the Mink Lake basin of Oregon’s Three Sisters Wilderness. The three of us on the left have been backpacking together for well over 30 years. Not in our 20’s anymore, but we still love doing the miles.
We all have opportunities to make presentations. It may be to a very small group or a larger audience, and it really is not that hard especially when you know these five things about people.
Great spoken word poem.
In this 11 minute video, Palau Association President Kevin Palau interviews Imago Dei Community Pastor Rick McKinley.
Good discussion on how the holistic gospel doesn’t separate or try to remove or even compartmentalizes, but understands that both proclamation and social justice need each other. They are both part of the embodiment of the gospel.
Rick also talks about the partnership between the churches in Portland and the City of Portland that attempts to embody this shift change.
This post about Dr. Gordon Fee (emeritus professor of New Testament at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia) is a bit of a departure from the norm and I promise not to make it a habit.
Dr. Fee’s latest work, Revelation, was published in October as part of the New Covenant Commentary series. I’ve got it on order and look forward to having it in my library. We desperately need a thoughtful and biblical take on this book that isn’t filtered through our dominate western rationalistic worldview.
In the 32 minute video interview below, Dr. Fee talks about the book of Revelation and basic principles of understanding Scripture.
Here are a few select quotes to give you a taste for the interview.
I don’t have trouble with people reading the Bible literally, because most of it is to be understood literally. But they shouldn’t read the Psalms or the Revelation that way. Yes, take it literally in terms of what it is, but please let it be its thing, don’t make it different than what it is.
[Revelation is] a marvelous book, and I just cringe whenever I see and hear people take it and make it have to do primarily with something in our future, when the only stuff that’s in our future [is] chapters 21 and 22. Everything else belongs back in the near future of these seven churches and all other Christians at the beginning of the second century.
I just experience enormous pain when I hear [Revelation] used in a Dispensationalist way, because frankly they know almost nothing about the book as John intended.
The problem with North Americans … is that we think we have a special privilege with God and we should get all the breaks and none of the pain.
[If there is one thing to know about the book of Revelation, know that it is] about the first century church that is headed for a terrible two century holocaust. Read it with that in view and then ask yourself, where do I fit in.
Enjoy and let me know what you think.
I’ve often noted that the term “church” refers to the people of God; the called out ones; those formed for his dwelling and bearers of his presence in the world. It doesn’t refer to a building, denomination or physical location.
This video clip points this out well. I wish I’d had it for the class I recently taught on the subject. My tagline for the class was, “The Church is a who, not a what.”

This is a series of videos, produced and by Imbi and Bill Kinnon, of a chat between Gary Nelson, President of Tyndale University College & Seminary and Dave Fitch, Associate Professor of Evangelical Theology at Northern Seminary. You need to take time to watch these videos. They are really insightful and encouraging.
In this first conversation, Dave and Gary discuss whether the word “missional” had become so over-used/mis-used that it no longer has value.
Here Dave and Gary talk about theological education that is not simply for full-time seminarians, nor designed purely to create full-time ministers, missionaries or other paid church staff.
This third video looks at The Pastor in Post-Christendom, a calling that lacks social significance in the eyes of much of society. They end the conversation talking about what excites them about our future in a Post-Christendom world.
You can subscribe to Bill Kinnon’s Missional Channel on Vimeo for more videos on the Missional Conversation. There are 14 videos available at this time.
Verge has just released The Forgotten Ways videos from Verge 2010 conference which was held back on February 4–6 in Austin, Texas. You can find all the video’s here. Give them a view; they are all worth your time.
Here Alan Hirsch does an excellent introduction to “The Forgotten Ways” and goes into a little depth on the mDNA, the Apostolic Genius.
