Trying To Follow Jesus

From Pastor Rob Bell:

As a Christian, I am simply trying to orient myself around living a particular kind of way, the kind of way that Jesus taught is possible. And I think that the way of Jesus is the best possible way to live. This isn't irrational or primitive or blind faith. It is merely being honest that we are all livin ga 'way'. I'm convinced being generous is a better way to live... I'm convinced compassion is a better way to live. I'm convinced pursuing peace in every situation is a better way to live. ... This way of thinking isn't weird or strange; it is simply acknowledging that everybody follows somebody and I'm trying to follow Jesus."
