Welcome to the call to community. Welcome to the mess of relationship, differences, variety and perspectives.

Come on into this Christian work of spreading the Good News and building up the Church and world we hope for, long for, believe in. Contemplate the Gospel with us. Resist injustice with us. Pray with us.

This is the stuff of Messy Jesus Business.

Here at Messy Jesus Business – the blog and now the podcast – we’re exploring the mess of radical Gospel living. We experience Christian discipleship as a life of struggle as we advocate for social justice, live simply, serve others, practice contemplation and live in community. 

For nearly 10 years, this blog has been offering insights, resources and reflections for radical Gospel living.

Along with Sister Sister Julia Walsh, FSPA (Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration) the Messy Jesus Business guest bloggers–formerly known as Rabble Rousers—have offered works of creative nonfiction, poetry, essays and resources related to radical Gospel living. We still welcome their reflections about walking with Jesus into the messy parts of discipleship.

Now we’re expanding the meaning of what it is to be a Messy Jesus Business Rabble Rouser to include anyone who participates and contributes to the shaping of this online community. Now you can become a Rabble Rouser too! 

Sign up HERE to join the newly forming community of Messy Jesus Business Rabble Rousers.

The building of God’s reign of peace and justice needs you! We welcome all people into the community as we explore the margins and celebrate the goodness. 

Welcome to the mess!
