The Southeast Emergent Cohorts are following in our footsteps and hosting a regional gathering in their neck of the woods now too. On October 11-13 they will be holding a retreat in Elfland, North Carolina with Chicago's own Scot McKnight as well as Mary McClintock-Fulkerson from Duke Divinity School to talk about Atonement as a Lifestyle, based on Scot's new book, "A Community Called Atonement".
If anyone who reads this blog is from that area you should definitely consider going. And if you aren't, but know someone who is, let them know about it. It's exciting to see more regional events happening. As we found with our conference, there are a lot of people who want to connect with the emerging church movement but can't make it to the big national conferences. A regional gathering makes these connections more possible.
Best of luck to Tripp Fuller, Steve Knight and all the others planning this event. I wish I could be there!
