This morning John McLaverty, a member of the parish and also a pastor-turned-Church-Consultant, preached. I appreciate his style very much--like me he likes to go without notes, looking people in the eye and developing a relationship as he goes. I would describe his exegetical style in this case as being somewhat experiential, not afraid to do a bit of Midrash to break open the word like so much bread. Good stuff. John is very smart about the Missional Church stuff being developed, and I'm looking forward to learning more about that from him.
