The Irresistible Revolution quote

I have always respected Shane Claiborne for his audacity to go out in the ways that he believes God is calling him to.  I am reading a book called Hipster Christianity by a guy who just might have the most awesome name ever (Brett McCracken) right now and they used a quote from Claiborne that I believe should be shared with you all.

There are those of us who, rather than simply reject pop evangelicalism, want to spread another kind of Christianity, a faith that has much to say about this world as it does about the next.  New prophets are rising up who try to change the future, not just predict it.  There is a movement bubbling up that goes beyond cynicism and celebrates a new way of living, a generation that stops complaining about the church it sees and becomes the church it dreams of.  And this little revolution is irresistible.  It is a contagious revolution that dances, laughs, and loves.

I hope that this quote hits your heart just as much as it did my own.
