Brian McLaren asks, “How would a person make a move from where he or she is to where he or she wants to be, from the old confining kingdom of egotism, racism, consumerism, hedonism, and its other associates –isms to the expansive kingdom of God (in which, we might say, all those –isms are to become –wasms)?”

This is what we’ve been talking about on Sunday mornings (and we’ll continue to discuss, so I don’t want to give too much away). McLaren talks about five moves:

Move One: Rethinking (including Repenting)
Move Two: Believing
Move Three: Receiving
Move Four: Going Public
Move Five: Practicing a New Way of Life

What do you think of McLaren’s model? What would you change, qualify, tweak?
