Conversation Wednesday - Feb. 11 @ 10:30 a.m.

Join us Wednesday, Feb. 11 f or our monthly 'Conversation.'
1o:30 a.m. @ the Urban Mill on Michigan Avenue, Grand Rapids

~ Lori Wilson will be leading our conversation this month ~

To get a start on the topic:

I just returned from 2½ weeks in the United Kingdom, joining the Calvin College interim class “Pubs, Clubs, and Post-Christian Faith Communities”. It was fantastic to once again engage with, and learn from, communities of faith living and working in a very different context. It was fantastic, too, to return to Grand Rapids, to continue the work of God’s kingdom in our own context.

Two themes that cropped up frequently in our conversations were those of formation and transformation. I came home anxious to discuss these ideas (and especially their implementation) with Grand Rapids folks, so let’s center our conversation next Wed. morning around these questions:

· What are your experiences of transformation and formation?
· What are the differences between these two things? The similiarities?
· What does it mean to be formed, and transformed, in the context of God’s kingdom?
· How do we intentionally pursue formation and transformation?

I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

Finally, you can also find short clips of our trip at (“recent activity” are this year’s films; the rest are from Interim ’08).
