A few odds and ends for your Friday enjoyment…
- Mike Morrell, who is “Facebook Friends with everyone on the planet,” has an interesting little conversation going on at his blog about apologetics and post-postmodernism (yes, that’s right, two – count ‘em – “posts” there). Basically, he’s pondering the question of whether or not the emergent/postmodern conversation is already getting a bit long in the tooth, thanks to the newest generation which is bringing an entirely new set of concerns and questions to the community of faith. He flatters me by calling me an “integral Christian thinker and practitioner” because of my interest in Wilber, but frankly I feel far too inadequate to offer much in the way of the fascinating (and philosophically nuanced) conversation that is emerging in his comment box.

- In Mike’s post, he refers to this website: Integral Christian, which seeks to introduce the connection between Ken Wilber’s integral theory and Christian praxis. The website is anonymous, giving no hint as to who authored the content or who owns the site, and I haven’t had a chance to read the essays themselves — so with that disclaimer in place, this might be a wonderful website or a waste of time. But it looks good, and is probably worth investigating.
- Do you live in Atlanta? If so, then there are some sweet events coming in October:
On October 17, the Jung Society of Atlanta presents Dr. Jerry Wright speaking on Celtic Spirituality and Jungian Psychology: Sources of Nourishment for the Modern Soul. Jerry is a kind and gentle man and I suspect this will be a fascinating evening. Cost for non-members is $20. For more information, visit http://www.jungatlanta.com/schedule-jwright.html.
The following week, on October 24, Richard Rohr will speak in Atlanta, for the first annual “Cathedral of Saint Philip Spirituality Conference.” The Intersection of Prayer and Life in the 21st Century: A Day with Richard Rohr costs $40; for more information, visit http://www.stphilipscathedral.org/rohr.html.
