Jordon has a conversation with Stephen Shields [of FaithMaps] I include it here for vanity reasons - my blog makes his Top 5 reading list. And also because its the freshest piece of wisdom I have read for a while.
Jordon Cooper: A couple of decades from now, when we look back at this time of new thoughts and emerging forms of church, what do you think our regrets will be? What do you think we are still getting wrong?
Stephen Shields: We will regret missing the magnificence of God Himself and his Son Jesus.
