If you live in Atlanta, are thinking about moving to Atlanta (you know who you are!), or are simply interested in helping progressive Christianity to prosper in the Atlanta area, this event looks mighty tasty: The Beloved Community: From Formation to Action which is scheduled for October 10-11, 2008. According to the “Progressive Christian Cooperative” website, this event will be a networking opportunity for those who are interested in living out an inclusive theology with an emphasis on social justice. The only sour note for me is that the PC Cooperative website explicitly states that it is “a movement within contemporary Protestant Christianity” — I wish they had used a word like “ecumenical” or some other tag that wouldn’t give a possible sense of being exclusive to non-Protestant Christians. Hopefully they won’t mind a Catholic or two coming to hang out, though.
