This weekend we will be getting together to watch the video "What is the Emerging Church" by Fr. Richard Rohr that Brother Curt recommended to us, followed by a discussion. This will be a great opportunity for all of the "lurkers" out there who may be wondering what we are all about. We will be meeting at 3pm at the Newbys. Feel free to bring some snacks or beverages if you have any to share, but it is not necessary.
You can e-mail me if you need directions or an address.
Here is the description from the back of the video:
"In this November 2008 webcast, Fr. Richard offers a wide view of what is being called the emerging or emergent church.
There are many definitions for this phenomenon, but Richard gives us four main categories that indicate something new and hopeful is happening in many denominations. He then delves into each of these four areas to examine more closely what he has observed happening in many parts of the world. It appears the fruits of the Holy Spirit are at work in this broad field of what is being called "the emerging church." This talk is a clear and very helpful introduction to this dynamic new phenomenon."
