Coming Soon: up/rooted.city!!!

I'm excited to announce that at long last and due to popular demand, we will be kicking off UP/ROOTED.CITY, our downtown Chicago branch of the cohort, on Tuesday, October 16 at 7pm. We will be meeting at Wicker Park Grace, in the Acme Art Works building at 1741 N. Western Ave., Chicago, IL 60647.

Come join us for good conversation, to share our stories, and to help participate in this emerging revolution of faith. If you are in or near the city then bring yourself and bring a friend. Or, if you are out in the suburbs, then tell a friend who lives further in.

Hope to see you at the kick-off!

P.S. If you are able to help us advertise by putting flyers up at schools or churches (especially in the downtown area) please let me know and I will send you a .pdf flyer.

I will do my best to flyer down around Hyde Park. There is a seminary at U.Chi. as far as I know. Where do I find the file?

jhimm, email me and I'll send it to you.

Nice! I have a meeting that night, but I think you can count on a Wilmette-based participant.

Dude. That's the same night as Brian McLaren's talk @ Dominican. Is Nanette in on this? Maybe I'll visit...

That is really great Mike. I hope that you can get the indigenous folks from the Urban Church involved.

We found out about the McLaren event at Dominican too late. We're going to go ahead with up/rooted.city anyway. Brian will also be at a book signing at the Borders in Wheaton the night before, so those who have already heard him speak in the past will be able to connect with him there. It's unfortunate that others will have to choose between the cohort and the Dominican event, but of course we'll be hopefully meeting regularly, so if people can't make the first meeting they can hopefully plug in down the road.

Is there going to be preaching?

I doubt it Max. up/rooted is usually more about discussion. We're a conversation group, not a church.
