january happenings...

Christmas is less than half a breath past us; a new year has arrived several days ago. And I'm increasinlgy realizing that we need to be intentional about our theology.

I hope your Christmas was filled with much awe as we celebrated the birthday of Christ coming to earth. With three young kids in our home, it has been a wonderfully good holiday season this year.

It has also been difficult to watch so many pastors on television being interviewed on various shows and hearing them share such bad theology in recent weeks. Reflecting on these things, I am increasingly believing that the emerging church has some good stuff to share, and it needs to be heard if we are to sound like anything other than total freaks in our culture.

During the month of January we have a couple of amazing opportunities that cost nothing.

The Janauary Series at Calvin College has much to offer. The two particular opportunities I want to pass along are:

January 5 - N.T. Wright on 'Simply Christian"
January 18 Miroslav Volf on 'Fee of Charge: Giving and Forgiving in a Culture Stripped of Grace."

AND - N.T. Wright will also be at Calvin Seminary on January 6.


Conversation Wednesday - january 10 @ 10:30 a.m.

topic: discussion on N.T. Wright from Friday the 6th at the January Series... and most anything else that comes up related to living into the kingdom...

Dear Friends,

This is a link where you can download Derek Webb's new album called Mockingbird for free! He is a great Christian folk singer/prophet and is doing this to get people talking about the issues in his songs. Just in case you have a slow internet connect, you should know that you have to download the album. The files are mp3s.
