Welcome to the mess.
Here at Messy Jesus Business – the blog and 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 inspiration, resources and reflections for radical Gospel living. Along with Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration Sister Julia Walsh, the Messy Jesus Business guest bloggers offer works of creative nonfiction, poetry, and prayers related to the messiness of following Jesus in our modern world.
