Atlantic Monthly, Xn Music, and Philly

September 30, 2009

Oh, to be a young believer in Philadelphia right now, where the spirit of Christian activism is mingling vigorously with an apparently unkillable strain of old-school countercultural Jesus-freakery.

That’s an excerpt from Atlantic Monthly’s James Parker, in his new article “Sing to the Lord a New Song.” The piece covers some of the Christian renewal efforts in Philly, including the influence of Shane Clairborne, mewithoutYou, and Circle of Hope. It seems like Christian Music plus social activism, anyone on the inside care to comment?
