The early church tried, failed and tried again. They did not know what was coming next - but they learned to depend on the Spirit, who was always one step ahead. The unpredictable Spirit invites us to an adventure of faith. The road is not straight, but the compass is sure. Malcolm calls Christians to become risk takers, not shackled to legacy, willing to do the right rather than the easy thing. This is the only way that the world will be changed.
