Upcoming Events & Conversation Wednesday...

Noon @ Urban Mill, Michigan Ave
Please bring your experience and creativity, and join us for a conversation:

"why generation omg is the theological stimulus plan we need"
(A friend, tweeting Kenda Dean FirstThird)   What do you think?  Let's talk about generation "omg" (plenty of food for thought right there) and how that group challenges us and our theology.
Hope to see you then!

Upcoming opportunities: 

+Doing Something bigger than yourself.  Oakdale Park Church (Saturday, March 13)
What does pursuing justice look like now -- given the economy, foreclosures, joblessness, and anxiety over the future?
What opportunities are there that there may not have been before -- for individuals, for the church, for those in the suburbs and in the urban-center?  
What special solutions might bring justice for "the least of these"?  
Anyone interested in practical and hopeful ways to address the growing need for justice in Grand Rapids and around the world is welcome to join this time of training and fellowship.
For more information and to register:
+The Insurrection Tour comes to Grand Rapids (April 9).  "Peter and friends set out to remind us that belief in the event of Resurrection means nothing less than participation in an Insurrection..."  Info: or RSVP:!/event.php?eid=314484900543&ref=ts
+Road trip to "Free for All" National Event Durham, NC (April 15-16) Can you imagine communities that encounter the biblical text as a privileged invitation to collaborate in the process of interpretation? In these same communities — collective and personal imagination, artistic expression, sacramental practices such as the common table and baptism, and other essential practices such as mission, hospitality, and dialogue are not only motivated by the text but also are integral in shaping our reading of the Bible. This is the vision of the "Free for All."
