Spencer Burke interviews Shane Claiborne about his thoughts on community and social justice. Throughout the interview Shane is juggling with his friend Joe on the lawn of Princeton. Shane says, “Community is about surrounding ourselves with people who look like the person we want to become. When you surround yourself with folks like that, they rub off on you, and hopefully they move us a little closer to who Jesus is because we can see God’s love lived out in them. And we dare each other to risk a little bit more.”
Shane has just returned from a trip to Sweden and Norway where he spent time with a gathering of Christians from different denominations who are uniting. Shane is impressed by the fact that this Scandinavian movement is led by young people who are promoting the togetherness of the body of Christ. Like Shane, they believe Christians can do more together than divided.
Social justice, beauty and fun go hand-in-hand in Shane’s world. He is drawn to movements not just because of ideology, but because people are sharing something more beautiful that what was there before. Living responsibly and moving social justice forward is not just about protesting, but about “protestifying”—not just speaking against something, but acting and creating something more beautiful.
