Nov 17 – The Cultivate Gathering at The Freeway in Hamilton Ontario. It’s a learning party for leaders plantings missional communities in Canada. Sponsored by Resonate. Although I’ll be saying a few words on leadership, I’m mainly going to hang out with friends and talk missional. If you’re going, I look forward to sipping some coffee and listening.
Nov 30-Dec 1 – The 2007 Ancient Evangelical Future Conference. on the primacy of Biblical Narrative. This topic is important to me as I believe evangelicals must learn how to speak differently about Scripture’s authority, and practice the reading, teaching and living of Scripture in a way that resists commoditizing the Word of God. The plenary speakers will be Kevin Vanhoozer, Scot McKnight, and Edith Humphrey. This is a good line-up! I’ll be introducing my friend Scot McKnight on Friday night. I look forward to connecting with friends at the many breaks during the conference.
Feb 12-14 – 2008 Ecclesia National Gathering: Practicing the Gospel. I’ll be here in Maryland with Alan Hirsch. Knowing Alan, this should be an extraordinary couple of days. Looking forward to seeing many friends.
