Tonight, we experienced our third Celebration of the Faithful. After a meal of savory appetizers and lively dialogue about this, we contemplated portions of Peter Rollins's How (Not) to Speak of God, C. S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and scripture. Next, we took communion while a slide show of Christian artwork was displayed. Throughout the event, we sought to intentionally reflect on the provocative question: Would we still follow Christ if heaven or hell did not exist? A prayer journal was born, and Mason enjoyed a back scratch of sorts. Thanks, Jesse, for organizing; and thanks, Nick & Jane, for hosting. Personally, the shared sense of community in this group has been truly enriching over the last few months. And it seems we are being Emergent if our discussion topics, open-ended dialogue, and decentralized hierarchy, etc. are indications. But how are we doing Emergent? And how are we doing it in Central Ohio specifically?
