Sorry about the delay in getting a summary of our last up/rooted gathering out to you all. We had a great brainstorming session about new models of church led by Kristine and based on concepts from the book The Shaping of Things to Come.
When I get more time I will try to send a summary of our discussion. However, I wanted to get out a reminder for our next meeting as soon as possible since it will involve some reading. We'll be meeting next on Monday, June 19 from 7-9pm at the Caribou in Glen Ellyn to discuss Brian McLaren's new book The Secret Message of Jesus. I know this is somewhat short notice, so if you don't have time between now and then to acquire and read the whole book, come anyway. We'll extend the discussion into upcoming months if we need to.
I look forward to seeing you guys there. And as always, if you need a ride please let me know.
