Big Beasts and Little Prophets
Wearing homemade clothes and dread-locked hair, Shane Claiborne is an "extremist for love." With tears and laughter, he unveils the tragic truth of our world and the incredible hope of "another way of life." His ministry experience is varied, from a 10-week stint working alongside Mother Teresa in Calcutta, to a year spent serving a wealthy mega-congregation at Willow Creek Community Church outside Chicago.
In this 2006 talk recorded live at Greenbelt, Shane Claiborne uses the example of his outcry at the Republican National Convention to explain the difference between "protesting" and "protestifying." He also looks to the margins of empires and markets, where little Jesus communities have long practiced radical interdependence and hospitality: We learn new and ancient stories of folks becoming the church they dream of. Greenbelt is a Christian music and arts festival in the United Kingdom first held in 1974 that attracts around 19,000 festival-goers.
