Aslan's on the move

I can't encourage everyone enough to get out into different Christian contexts to see what God is birthing. What keeps surprising me is no matter how far I travel, and how vastly different the pockets of Christian gatherings I visit, the Spirit is saying the same thing. Spring is coming. The thaw is here. All creation is longing. Aslan's on the move.

We're a wild, flailing generation, aren't we? We've thrown denominational categories out because we can't be bothered to split theological hairs. We have hope because we've experienced hopelessness. We're ready to put it all on the line because we're more actuely aware of the transient nature of life spent on this globe. If we manage to stay in tune with Father's whispering, manage to respect the parents and grandparents that have tilled the ground before we were born, manage to recognize that to live is Christ and to die is gain, then we just might be the ones that get to experience what has only been dreamed about.

I only take this as a compliment because you're Italian and I know you appreciate the benefit of carbs in a healthy diet.

Down with Atkins.

I love the notion of Aslan being "on the move". And not only that, but that he calls us to run with him "further up and further in". We serve a dynamic God who's kingdom is advancing. Yessss!

Also, if you want the rest of the lyrics to that french song, let me know.
