Welcome

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.

Creative Prayer

Check out this cool sampling of prayer station ideas.  Two of my favorites are To Be Broken and Deathbed Conversions.  At the U2Charist a few weeks ago, several prayer stations were set up outside of Skully's in order to focus awareness on issues of consumerism and poverty.  The tangible interaction required by these simple activities made them profoundly powerful.
Also of interest is a video that the originator of the site posted describing a Sojourners Evening at their church.  Observing the way in which the sanctuary was transformed reminded me of McLaren's thoughts regarding certain church denominations more readily able to incorporate "fresh expressions."
