up/rooted.west: What is the Emerging Church?

Don't forget, our next up/rooted.west gathering will be Monday, March 26 at 7pm at the Giordanos Pizza on Roosevelt Rd in Glen Ellyn. We will be discussing the question "What is the Emerging Church?" with a particular focus on the EC as a convergence of many different contemporary streams of faith. This will be a good conversation both for those who are new to the conversation and would like a clearer picture of what it's all about, as well as for those who have been around for a while now, but who would enjoy a chance to get "back to basics" and talk about what is really at the core of this movement - to remind ourselves why this is important and why we're a part of it. Maybe you'll even gain some fresh insights into the EC too!

If you'd like to read ahead, we'll be using my two recent articles as the catalyst for our discussion:

What is the Emerging Church?

The Converging Church

Hope to see you there!
