I Am Emergent Village

Please welcome Kimberly Roth's reflections on Emergent Village.  You can read more from Kimberly on her blog called Barefoot Bohemian.Once upon a time, I didn’t have a clue what “emergence” was, much less that I should be confused over clarifying if I meant “Emergent,” “emerging” or “emergence” (please don’t ask me to try, I’m out of migraine meds.)In the summer of 2006, I attended a Sojourners conference as a part of their young leaders program (barely made the age cut). Brian McLaren wa … [Read more...]

God's Coming

Please give a warm welcome to first time blogger and smart lady Pamela Chaddock.They say it was a glorious day some two thousand years ago when the Spirit of Truth, the outpoured presence of Jesus, was released upon the world for the edification of all those with ears to hear. It happened then, it’s happening now, and I celebrate the significance of Pentecost that I’m hearing. Ahead of this moment our planet witnessed a miraculous demonstration of the Father’s love with the birth of Jesus – … [Read more...]

I understand this might not be popular. But do want to say that the … [Read more...]

What’s Wrong With the “New Reformed” Movement? Part 2

One author in particular drew me in: Nathaniel Hawthorne. I don't know much about Hawthorne, but after I read Young Goodman Brown, it felt like I knew exactly where he was coming from.The first negative experience I can remember coming from a New Calvinist preacher was when he described going to a baseball game, … [Read more...]

Toward Collective Liberation: Building Successful Social Movements

TCLCover

It wasn't until recently I realized that I had somehow lost a bunch of digital files off my computer. It was mainly photos and newspaper articles from my activist work when I lived in the San Francisco/Bay Area from the late 90's to the mid 2000's.

My experience with Occupy Movement organizing left me longing to reconstruct what was good, strategic and expansive about our activism back in the day … [Read more...]
