It's time for a new kind of Christianity.
It is time to re-imagine the world and the way we live—the old patterns of politics, economics, and religion that aren't working. It's time for a new kind of Christianity that is open to the power of vulnerability and eager to bring people together by what we have in common rather than to be divided by the ways we are different. We are a group that comes together to play, study, and discover Jesus in places others might be passing Him by.
In the book What we Talk About When we Talk About God Rob Bell says...
"[When I was 20, I drove an Oldsmobile. My friends called it "the Sled." It was a magnificent automobile, the Sled, and it served me well for those years. But they don't make Oldsmobiles anymore. They used to be popular, and your grandparents or roommate may still drive one, but the factories have shut down.
Oldsmobile couldn't keep up with the times, and so it gradually became part of the past, not the future.
Can God keep up with the modern world? Is God going to be left behind? Like Oldsmobiles?]"
Join us as we meet weekly at OPA on South Lamar to dialogue and discover what a new kind of Christianity would look like right here in Austin. The group is for those in their 20's and 30's and is open to any and everyone that would like to gather with others curious about living into simple and genuine love.
