Amid the ruins of an abandoned cathedral where homeless families were living, Shane and his community caught a fresh vision of what it means to be the Church. With ancient stories of the early Christians, contemporary stories of ordinary radicals, stories from the streets of Philly and the war zone of Iraq, Shane will invite us to re-imagine what it means to be the Body of Christ alive in the world. He will reflect on the scandal of God's inclusive love in a world that is starved for grace.
