It’s Friday, and there’s some events happening here nearby. I recommend them. And they’re cheap (which I’m sorry always factors in for me:) ).
1.) David Fitch Speaking (that’s me) on “Missional: Not a Program.” This is happening tomorrow night, Saturday Mar 23rd. at Northern Seminary. Everyone is invited. I’ll be presenting on why we’re having problems shaping churches into “Missional” and where do we go from here. There will be copies of Prodigal Christianity for sale at half price. There will be appetizers, conversation, Q&A. My bro Geoff Hoslclaw will be with me to answer questions on the book. More information here.
2.) Epic Fail: is having another event at Northern Apr 26-27. Think of it, a place where you can let go of the need to be a “super pastor.” I think we all need (from time to time) to relieve ourselves of the drive to be a super pastor thereby freeing our selves to humbly faithful serve out of the Holy Spirit’s work in our communities. Check this gig out here.
3.) Making Peace Seminar: My buddy Jim Yperen and team (we’ve journeyed some together) are presenting a seminar on the “guts” of making peace, the practice of reconciliation, in our churches. June 15th at Wheaton College, Wheaton IL. I recommend it. Check it out here.
4.) Wheaton Theology Conference: is on Political Theology, a topic near and dear to my heart. Stanley Hauerwas and Bill Cavanaugh will be there among other notables (including Scot McKnight). You can’t register for the conference any longer but the evening sessions are open to the public. Check it out here.
HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND EVERYBODY!
