Thanks to Nadia at Illif for setting up a terrific panel for us in November. We will meet Sunday November 19th - during the AAR meetings - to engage Brian McLaren, Pete Rollins and Phyllis Tickle. Keelan Downton has agreed to be the host for this DC Cohort event.

Was wondering if the panel was a separate event from the cohort gathering? On Phyllis' website, she has a discussion about "What is the Emerging Church..." from 4-6 p.m. And the cohort meeting is from 7-9 pm.

Are these different events, the panel and the cohort meeting? (I'm not sure what AAR is, so maybe that would help alleviate my confusion!) If they are different events, will McLaren, Rollins and Tickle be present at both the panel and the cohort meeting?

Sorry for all the questions!

Hey Josh - sorry for the delay. The cohort/theology pub/panel are one thing and is happening from 7-9. All these folks are speaking at the AAR - American Academy of Religion - meeting that is taking place here in DC. The 4-6 talk is probobly something with the AAR.

Hope this helps! I won't be able to be there, but know this will be great!
