Free Event in Long Beach!!!

Two of my main inspirations will be leading a discussion on the radical Plan of Jesus.

Plan "Be" calls us to be the change we want to see in the world.

Dave Andrews, activist, anarchist and author or the books: Christianarchy, Not Religion but Love, and Plan Be, has been living in radical communities for over forty years. Working in community development, advocacy for marginalized people, intentional community life, and a deep understanding of the principles of Power with, rather than power over, Dave has lead courses twice a year for those seeking to understand the principles of Christianarchy at work in the Waiters Union community.

Ched Myers is an activist, and author of such books as "Binding the Strongman" and "Who Will Roll Away the Stone" and has been one of the leading inspirations of the radical discipleship movement. His incredible biblical scholarship has challenged many people to become followers, as well as believers of Christ.

please come join us for some coffee and stimulating conversation

which community is that?

john jensen said...

We don't have a name or a website. We have dinner and bible discussion on Monday night at my house. We have breakfast with some of the homeless folk in bixby park on Sunday mornings and have a number of things in the works. We are a relatively new community discovering who we are and what that means in Long Beach
