Rob Bell modern telling of the Beatitudes--so good.

A modern telling of the B-attitudes by Rob Bell.. 140 characters at a time via @realrobbell

Blessed are those who don’t have it all together.

Blessed are those who have run out of strength, ideas, will power, resolve, or energy.

Blessed are those who ache because of how severely out of whack the world is.

Blessed are those stumble, trip, and fall in the same place again and again.

Blessed are those who on a regular basis have a dark day in which despair seems to be a step behind them wherever they go.

Blessed are you, for God is with you, God is on your side, God meets you in that place.

The gospel is the counter-intuitive, joyous, exuberant news that Jesus has brought the unending, limitless, stunning love of God to even us.

I have been really enjoying his sermons lately, including that whole series about the Beatitudes. The Jonah series is fabulous.
