"I Guess I'm Not a Very Good Christian . . ." Do you feel like: I don't pray enough I don't read my Bible enough I don't share my faith enough I don't love God enough I'm not committed enough I'm not spiritual enough Then this book is for you. Messy Spiritualtiy was written for the silent majority of us who have been convinced that we just don't do Christianity right. We spend most of our lives worried about what we don't do instead of what we have done, focused on our imperfections instead of God's fondness for the imperfect. Why? Because we've been bombarded with books, tapes, talks, seminars, and movies convincing us that real Christianity is all about perfection. Michael Yaconelli dares to suggest that imperfection, unfinishedness, and messiness are, in fact, the earmarks of true Christianity; that real Christianity is messy, erratic, lopsided . . . and gloriously liberating. What if genuine faith begins with admitting we will never have our act completely together? Maybe messy disciples are exactly the kind of imperfect people Jesus came to earth for and whose company he actually enjoyed--and still enjoys. If you want to find Jesus today, look for him in the midst of burned-out believers, moral misfits, religious incompetents . . . men and women whose lives are, well, messy. Messy Spirituality is a strong antidote for the spiritual perfectionism in us all. Here are truths that can cut you loose from the tyranny of ought-to's and open your eyes to the deep spirituality of being loved, shortcomings and all, by the God who meets you and transforms you in the midst of a messy and unpredictable life.… (mer)

A decent reminder that we are all messy, we all need grace, and we need to stop judging others when we're just as much in need of grace. ( )

I guess this is new and exciting for non-Lutherans, but kind of obvious to us. ( )

A refreshingly honest look at how ordinary people can connect with God, without having to go through the hoops and trappings that are so often associated with ‘spirituality’. Yaconelli was a pastor, yet he struggled at times to pray. He made mistakes, he messed up. He explains that the spiritual life does not have to be a neat progression of steps but is often disorganised and messy.

Specific chapters look at hindrances to the spiritual life. The author encourages us to let go of the past, whether it was traumatic or not, and to move on with God into our future.

He explodes some of the myths that some apparently super-spiritual people hold to; he encourages his readers to encounter Jesus for themselves. He looks at the importance of love, and of doing whatever we’re supposed to do, day by day, with examples of how little bits of grace occur when we least expect them.

Peppered with anecdotes, the book is quite thought-provoking. It’s not a difficult read, and I found it immensely encouragingl

I would recommend it highly to anyone, whatever stage they are on the Christian path. ( )

A common sentiment in Christian circles is that our spirituality or the love of God is conditional on how good we are, how "spiritual" we are, how much we do for God or for the church. Michael Yaconelli tackles this problematic belief in Messy Spirituality, and although a short book, it is a challenging read. Unlike popular belief, being a Christian does not mean one is perfect or that one has it all figured out; rather, the Christian is constantly under construction, "being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator" (Colossians 3:9).

Yaconelli claims that the real face of Christianity is not found in the perfectly ordered and regimented lives of perfect Christians because they do not exist - we are all messy, frail people who desperately need Jesus. This is a powerful antidote to the dangers of spiritual perfectionism; our shortcomings are not hindrances to a more perfect faith but an integral part of our mortal life - when we acknowledge that, we are free to start living as God has called us.

This is a challenging book for both individuals and churches - it encourages to act and love wildly and widely, without hindrance because that is exactly what Jesus did. ( )

reread Messy Spirituality this week and glad I did. Mike is a down-to-earth guy that reminds us that we've tried to sanitize the church for far too long. Spirituality is hard and messy stuff! preach it Mike! If you want to read some classic Yaconelli look up some old Door issues. ( )
