Time to Tickle your Phyllis

The JoPa Group — that’s Jones and Pagitt — is putting on a whizbang event early next year, and I think that pretty much every reader of this blog should attend. It’s called Emergence Christianity: A National Gathering with Phyllis Tickle and Friends, and it’s going to be awesome.

The reason for the event is Phyllis’s new book, Emergence Christianity: What It Is, Where It Is Going, and Why It Matters, and everyone who registers gets a free copy of the book. But in reality, Phyllis doesn’t really need much of a reason to throw a party, and neither do Doug and I.

It’s taking place in the majestic and beautiful Episcopal Cathedral of St. Mary in Memphis. Phyllis will be the main presenter, and she’ll be surrounded and supported by friends like

Doug Pagitt
Nadia Bolz-Weber
Tony Jones
Peter Rollins
Jay Bakker
Diana Butler Bass
Brian McLaren
Eric Elnes
Jon M. Sweeney
Ryan Bolger
Mark Scandrette

And more are being added all the time. We’re planning on special live performances by Homebrewed Christianity and Darkwood Brew. And did I mention it’s in Memphis? That means BBQ, Sun Studio, and Graceland.

It only costs $95 to register, which is about the most affordable conference out there. So c’mon! Join us in Memphis, January 11-12, 2013!
