Shane Claiborne, New Monasticism and living out hope

shane1.jpgIan Mobsby discusses with Shane Claiborne, the vision of New Monasticism, and the practical implications of living this particular form of ecclesial community, and the calling to a radical lifestyle. Shane is one of the leading voices in a growing movement of New Monasticism in the United States.

His first book, The Irresistable Revolution is a key envisioning texts for all those interested or involved in New Monasticism. It has been a core text for many involved in New Monasticism in the UK and Europe. In this book Shane outlines his experiences of working as a volunteer in Calcutta in India, in a community overseen by Mother Teressa, and how this opened up a whole way of being Christian that up to that point, he had been unaware of. Shane is a founding Member of the Simple Way Community in Philedelphia, one of the early new-monastic communities.

Be prepared to be inspired! Lets keep up with Shane's visit to Iraq in January 2010, and hopefully we may even have him a long to a moot event in the not too distant future.

Advent - the becoming of the incarnation of God

incarnation2.jpgOn this the third Sunday of Advent December 2009, Ian Mobsby explores the importance of God coming as an ordinary human being.

The problem with Christianity is that it forgets too easily Christ the human being, preferring God the superbeing. The reality of the Incarnation is that there is a lot more to God the Redeemer than the Holy Rescue Effort. God coming as a human being is the fulfilment of all creation, and an incredible gift of love to humanity.
