ChristStyle icon-plain

  • ChristStyle – This essay is a discussion of eight elements in the lifestyle of Jesus Christ, conceived by Dan McGee a number of years ago. He and Katie Cook wrote about this interpretation of a Christ-ordained lifestyle in a series called ChristStyle in the “Taproot” department of Seeds Magazine. The two have also presented these ideas in various retreat and seminar settings. The “eight deadly virtues,” as one church group dubbed them, are taken from Matthew 5: 1-16, with particular attention to the Beatitudes.
