What does church look like in a post-Christian world? We at Communitas International have been asking this for many decades. The new book by Jon Ritner, Positively Irritating, was released November 13th. Jon is a former missional staff member. He now serves on our international board and is a pastor in Hollywood, California.
It has been an exciting launch month for Positively Irritating. We crossed 500 copies sold including copies sold through Amazon to readers in the U.K. Canada, Australia, Belgium, and Germany! Our family had a wonderful small launch celebration with Rita and Michael Warren, and current Board members, Teal Rapp and Stephen Millage in California. For our American friends, I believe this book will be a good resource to share with your supporters and home churches to articulate how they can apply the experiences of missionaries embedded in Post-Christianity abroad.
We loved sharing our Communitas’ story and I close my acknowledgements with this statement: ““Finally, I want to thank the courageous liminal leaders from Forge International, Communitas International, and Movement Leaders Collective who welcomed us into their respective tribes and who challenge us to keep following Jesus into the unknown.”Jon Ritner
