The current installment of the COEC began meeting in 2007.

We are currently on a "break," for no particular reason, and many little reasons - mostly pertaining to life circumstances. If anyone is interested in calling a meeting, feel free to post on the blog, join the google group (see link below) and send an email, or contact either Nancy (nancykj10@yahoo.com) or Jesse (schroeder.jesse@gmail.com) for more information.

To receive cohort emails, join our Google group.


Some of you probably saw this on emergentvillage.  In case you did not, here is a link to the newest Nooma video by Rob Bell.  I found it both powerful and relevant to our last meeting, as it pertains to the topic of prayer.  He says at one point, "prayer, if it's anything, is truth; it's being honest with your creator..."  Prayer is not a "rote ritual...", but rather "your whole posture towards life...the whole way that you see everything going on around you...it's when you never stop asking the question, 'what is God up to right here, right now, and how can I be a part of it.'"  The free viewing of the video expires on Wednesday.

Man - powerful video. I especially resonated with his description of tapping into the power that created the universe, and that is why people say we can "feel" prayers. I always think it is cool when there is a way to kind of understand how spiritual things work.

Thanks for sharing the link Greg!

btw if anyone missed the "limited engagement" I was able to save the video for later viewing. So let me know if you wanna see it.

Jesse, I'd love to see it. I wasn't able to get it to work.
