I'm learning that this "new" way of living isn't so radical after all. In fact, it's entirely natural... almost as if it's how life was designed to work. Yes, the original design! That's what we're recapturing!
Acts 2 Communal Living isn't abnormal! Living isolated lives segregated by technology & busyness is what's abnormal.
Team-Functionality isn't abnormal! Powering up on others & consolidating authority out of fear & ambition is what's abnormal.
Wholistic Spirituality isn't abnormal! Sanctifying the "spiritual" part of God's creation while rejecting the physical part as tainted & no longer good is what's abnormal.
Incarnational Missionality isn't abnormal! Not pursuing but waiting for the object of our love to come to us is what's abnormal.

... These are only radical or revolutionary concepts in that we have strayed so far from normal life. They're simply the natural elements of what normal, everyday, real life was created to look like. Let's drop our artificial constructs that we've grown used to & return to the only kind of life that can satisfy our souls. Let's live the real life!
