A Mobile Church for E.P.I.C. Times: Moving Across Faith Community Borders

Front Cover
iUniverse, Jan 1, 2003 - Religion - 172 pages
In his most significant book Fred Peatross challenges his readers to interface the world and the church; to step across faith community borders and create "safe-places" where believers, functioning as guides and explorers, comfortably journey with pre-Christians.

Fred Peatross writes from a heritage within the Restoration Movement, which gives him rightful claim to the title "A Protestant of the Protestants." His insights, challenges, conversations, questions, pokes, prods, humor, confrontations, and inspirations just might help awaken the sleeping Protestant giant, and thus open the way for better days of motivation, ministry, mission. Every reader will find much to remember, ponder, and put into practice.

The best black-and-white photographers understand that their art isn't really about black and white at all, but about "gray scale": capturing and preserving the myriad shades between obsidian and blinding white. With A Mobile Church For E.P.I.C. Times, Fred Peatross joins a growing number of "gray scale" ministry leaders...cultural pioneers well rooted in the gospel, but passionately aware that ministry to the emerging culture requires an "intermediacy" unfamiliar to the modern church. This book will nudge you out of black and white, formulaic ministry into God's prevenient, "gray-scale" work outside the stained-glass ghetto.
