Yo! One quick reminder that there is still time for anyone interested to get registered for the first-ever Midwest Emergent Gathering, July 20-21 in Rolling Meadows.
Mike and Julie Clawson of Up/rooted West have done alot of work on this along with many other friends. The conference is bringing together Tony Jones (Emergent Village), Denise Van Eck (Mars Hill Bible Church), Spencer Burke (theOoze.com), Nanette Sawyer (Wicker Park Grace), Doug Pagitt (Solomon’s Porch), and Alise Barrymore & James King (The Emmaus Community) and an astounding array of missional thinkers and practicioners. I DON’T KNOW HOW THEY DID IT! There will be many more workshops and times to converse about missional/emerging church. Kudos to Mike, Julie and all the others contributing to make this happen. There is still time to register. Furthermore, I hear they still need help with volunteers. You can connect with them via the conference website here (Midwest Emergent Gathering) or click on to the banner on my sidebar.
I’ll only be able to be there Friday. But I would love to connect with any friends over a coffee and talk theology and/or catch up with what you’re doing in your missional gatherings. Anyone coming who wants to connect, let me know please if you’re going to be around Friday via he blog here or my e-mail at “the Vine.”
Blessings on the Midwest gathering!
