Portland Trip – Donald Miller & Rick McKinley

Last week I spent 4 days in Portland. I enjoyed a morning with Donald Miller (Blue Like Jazz) discussing some of the projects he is working on. Exciting stuff will be coming from him (in the form of books, the Burnside Collective and even radio?…)

I met with Rick McKinley at a pub and I am really excited about McKinley’s next book unfortunately he may push back it’s release 6-months. The book will bring a lot of the work he has done on the Kingdom of God and how that pratically applies to a local church and their ministry. Imago Dei is doing so many ‘Kingdom’ minded things that other churches need to take a look at and learn from. [The more I think about the emergent movement the more I hope churches emerge toward a Kingdom view (versus programatic/fiefdom) of church.]
