Dude! Take a hammer to your evil I-Pod!
Shane Claiborne was the other session speaker last night at Urbana. If you aren't familiar with Shane...dude...you've gotta give him a listen. He's got a message about God's love, living simply and doing mission that is a breath of fresh air. His message:
If you can't give your stuff away to live in greater simplicity, then you don't own your stuff... your stuff owns you and limits your freedom to serve Jesus. "If you can't part with your i-pod...maybe the roles are reversed and the i-pod is really the owner and you are in its possession!
Ouch. I just got my first I-pod this Christmas, Shane, are you sure about that?
Check out Shane's ministry The Simple Way, and go find a hammer!
