In a recent poll of Australians, 70% of those polled claimed to mistrust religious leaders. Of course, I don’t spend a lot of time searching Australian polling data. I saw this because I pay attention to author and missiologist Michael Frost. Michael,  has spent much the past two decades tilting his ear towards those who live well beyond the walls of the institutional church, because… 

It is impossible to fulfill the Christian imperative to love my neighbor if I don’t know my neighbor. 

Michael’s work might be most poignantly categorized as a valiant and persistent effort to help us love those we live near. 

He is as a professor at Moorling college in Sydney and the author of 12 books, including his most recent: “Keep Christianity Weird.” He is also my guest on this episode of the @ Sea Podcast.
