The next couple weekends find me in St. Louis and Spokane. This weekend, I’ll be traveling to St. Louis for the National Youth Workers Convention — I’m thinking about bringing Lily (6) since NWA is offering seats there for only 15K miles.

Then, the next weekend I’ll be at a Mainline-Emergent Dialogue event in Spokane, co-hosted by the Pacific-Inland Presbytery and Whitworth College. If you live around there, or if you can score a cheap plane ticket, I want to encourage you to go. I’ll be there with Doug Pagitt, John Franke, and Karen Ward, and we’ll be conversing about all things emergent, and about the implications for mainline churches and denominations — however, with the four of us together, you’re sure to get a lot more as well…

    Hey bro, I wish i was going to be there. Very sad that I don’t think I can make this one. Alas… if things continue going well in Bend, we’ll have to host an Oregon / West coast Presbymergent conference. Talk to you soon,

    New to your site – appreciate the work here and raising a voice within the Church. As a consultant, I regularly hear misquotes and strange questions about the emergent church. Through my reading and numerous conferences – the concepts seem to be pretty clear. I still don’t get what the misunderstanding is all about. I would love to get a snap shot of the idea you will present at this conference.
