Counterculture Living

Posted by Hello
"In the late 1970's I attended a national conference of evangelical leaders. My small group, as I recall, included prominent persons like Carl Henry, the first editor of Christianity Today; Hudson Armerding, the president of Wheaton College; Loren Cunnigham, the founder of Youth With a Mission. Several times in our small group, different persons referred to the issue of a simple lifestyle, urging its importance. Finally, Loren Cunnigham said something like the following: 'Yes, I think the evangelical community is ready to live more simply - if we evangelical leaders will model it." That ended the discussion. There were no more recommendations to live more simply!" Ronald J. Sider, The Scandal of the Evangelical Conscience

Have you denied yourself and taken up your cross today?
