There are few authors on this earth that truly stir my soul and lead me down the path of a revolutionary lifestyle. Shane Claiborne is one of them. His book "The Irresistible Revolution" has radically changed the way I see the world, and his book "Jesus for President" really opened my eyes in the area of politics and empire and how the church succumbs to the pressures of the empire.
Having said that, the reason I "almost peed my pants" is that Shane will be coming to speak at our church, Quest, on November 9. Since the smoke of the election will not have settled, I am in eager anticipation of his words, especially in light of our country's new-found knowledge as to who our next president will be. I had heard rumor that Shane was going to be coming to our church to speak about "Faith & Money", but I just didn't know he would be coming so soon. The following are a couple of links about the conversation he will be having that evening in our sanctuary. The first is our pastor, Eugene Cho's, blog about Shane coming to speak. The second is the link to the Quest Church website which speaks more about the evening with Shane.
