The Starfish Manifesto

a Biblical thought...
What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? God will judge those outside. (1 Corinthians 5:12-13)

a Book thought...
When it comes to communicating to Gen Y the more we create an environment conducive to engaging with the head (knowledge), hands (application) and heart (inspiration), the more likely the learning will be embedded. (p122)

a Dave thought...
A few years ago I heard Wolfgang Simson and was amazed by his passion and unique ministry. I have since read "Houses that Change the World" and was also incredibly moved. His latest book The Starfish Manifesto also looks like a must read. Wolfgang says...

"Dear friends, after a long time in the making I am happy to finally present the release of "The Starfish Manifesto", my latest book. We released it in Antioch this October. You can download for free it as a pdf file at Probably the largest reformation of all times in Church history is in full swing. It is the combination of a threefold current initiative of God: moving from church to Kingdom as our legal base; moving from pastoral, teacher-based & evangelistic to apostolic and prophetic foundations; and departing from a market-shaped behaviour to a kingdom-shaped economy.You are free to pass this book (and the key-file) on to as many people as you like, including posting it on websites."

The Starfish Manifesto is not a ventilation of brainpower neither is it an abstract collection
of statistics, historical data, scriptures, experiences nor academically enriched paragraphs. It is however a spiritual life buoy that seeks to rescue the church from it desultory practices.
(Anderson Williams)

Just a thought.
