Emerging Conference - Webcast Kickoff

That's funny - we we're just discussing this, and lookie loo, right there in my email! I would offer our house as a place to set up the webcast (2.5 weeks from now) and just a reason to do a BBQ we've been kickin' around, but I don't want to make everybody drive out here. Volunteers? Or, just say you'll come down (Germann & Recker -ish) and we'll do it here!


Dear Friend,

On behalf of the Center for Action and Contemplation I invite you to join us as our guests on November 8 for a very important and exciting webcast by Fr. Richard Rohr entitled: What is The Emerging Church ?

I hope you have felt the excitement that something fresh and dynamic is emerging in the Christian community. Seemingly independently, there is new energy among Roman Catholics, Mainline Protestants, Evangelicals and other Christians for what we’re starting to call the “emerging church.” Now, the Center for Action and Contemplation is hosting this webcast in November as well as the first large gathering of Christian denominations in March 2009, so that we can explore this emergence and convergence together.

During the November 8 webcast, international author and spiritual teacher, Richard Rohr, OFM, will offer his evaluation, his own questions, and his hopes for this movement of the Holy Spirit that is taking place in both Europe and North America. Fr. Richard’s talk will be followed by a question and answer session where he will respond to e-mailed questions from webcast viewers around the world.

This is an exciting new step in the development in the Emerging Church movement and we invite you, your friends and colleagues to join us free of charge on November 8.

To register for the webcast please see the attached HTML invitation. To receive your free log on password, please contact me at ---@--- or alternatively you can phone me at -------

The webcast will be followed in March 2009 by a major international conference entitled, The Emerging Church: Conversations, Convergence and Action. Please visit: www.cacradicalgrace.org for more information on the conference.

I hope that you will be able to join us on November 8 and I look forward to assisting you with this.

I know I'd like to see the webcast... and I'd LOVE to go to the conference in March. Not sure if it will work out though. ::playing it by ear::

I wouldn't mind going to your house Jacob. (I love those dogs of yours.)
I'd also like to go to the conference. Is it really in Albuquerque?

The webcast is a given, but I am really excited to actually go to this thing. When I look on EV for conferences and stuff, they are always in the east, this is the first time I've ever seen a conference in the west (besides some stops on the EMC tour).

To have such big names is also a pretty enticing thing. If the AZ crew is going, I really wanna connect. I think our two cohorts are the only ones in real driving distance to this thing. I have all the South West cohorts listed on the Vegas Blog, and I believe the only cohort even thinkably close enough is Salt Lake, and they are really far out from NM.

The Vegas crew will have to pass through AZ though, maybe in May we can all travel together and get a group rate. I wrote the conference an email asking if Cohort people couldn't get in for a discount, I'll let you guys know what they say.
