[from labels to liberty]

My friend Jamie Arpin-Ricci, "an urban missionary, pastor, church planter and writer living in Winnipeg’s inner city West End neighbourhood", wrote an excellent post on from labels to liberty, addressing first the importance of seeing people primarily as people rather than based on labels, then giving a specific example in the context of mental illness and the church, and closing with the importance of truth-speaking. I recommend the article highly – Jamie is articulate and speaks from his experience within his community.

He has also just released a book called The Cost of Community: Jesus, St. Francis and Life in the Kingdom (click to find out more about this book, including "a look inside").
