44. The Train

Summary: Look at the world as a military/market-driven train moving in the wrong direction, going from life to death.  In the face of this speeding train of death, we need pastors who are not so much cheerleaders (who might help us travel in First Class on the train) or chaplains (who try to help “put us back together” as we ride this deathly journey), but pastors who are conspirators.  Conspirators first alert us that the train is moving toward death, help us start walking in the other direction so we experience the deathliness of the train, and finally with the help of the whole conspiring church start figuring out how to change the direction of the train.  Jesus conspired in this way, and gives us the confidence to do the same.
