I don't do this often but here is a second blog for the day. On Sunday I spoke about St. Francis, inviting folk to consider his radical life as an enduring legacy for our time as well. I mentioned Shane Claiborne as a modern-day Francis. Claiborne has been doing important inner city work in Philadelphia with the poor and homeless. He came to speak at Rendez Vous, the conference attended by more than 600 United Church young people this past August.
Well, today, the Feast of St. Francis, Shane Claiborne has a piece in the Huffington Post on Francis of Assisi. Whaddya know. Take a look.
