January 2006 Update

Emergent west michigan gathering THIS week…

Wednesday, Jan. 11 @ 10:30 a.m. - The Bite (downtown Grand Rapids)

Topic #1: Isaac Munji, a native of Kenya, will be sharing both his perspective on the emerging church around the world and the work he has envisioned for Kenya.

Isaac has been in G.R. for 7 years, and he just finished his Master’s Degree in counseling at GRTS. He founded Africa Family Life Ministries, and he is closely connected with the missional efforts of Jason Anderson.

Topic #2: Where we have been & where we are going with emergent west michigan for 2006. Join us for a lively discussion. Your input will help shape our story for the next year.

West Michigan cooperative update…

If you are interested in joining a group of pastoral minded people every other week for prayer, support, and encouragement, please e-mail Jason Anderson: jasonanderson@chartermi.net

Detroit area emergent cohort begins to form…

If you have friends in the Detroit area, please pass this information their way! I’ve had the opportunity to converse and meet with Lonnie a number of times over recent months. He is passionate about the ways of Jesus, the church, and the emerging church conversation. Here is a recent e-mail I received.

------------------------------------
My name is Lonnie Burrell and I will be creating a cohort group in the Detroit Metro area. It would be great if you were a part of the group. The group will probably meet monthly. I’m not sure of the actual day of the month, but we can work that as a group. I am excited about meeting everyone. Please reply as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Lonnie Burrell

I would like to extend a heart felt "thank you" to Isaac for sharing with us this week. His personal life and ministry dream is inspiring to me.

I've given his comments and our discussion some thought and have written some reflections on this in light of a broader topic I've been thinking through and you can find this on my blog.

Peace, friends.
