Hey - We will meet at 7pm at the Front Page Resturant on Dupont Circle in Tuesday November 11 to get the low down on the Emergent Mid Atlantic gather that took place over the weekend in Philly. Yours truly was not able to go, but I'm hoping that those of you who did (hint, hint) would be willing to give us and update of what happened, what was said, etc.
There are other activities of interest happening over the coming months. The first is an Advent reflection happening at Wesley Theological Seminary by Lauren Winner, author of Girl Meets God and Mudhouse Sabbath. Lauren is professor of Christian Spirituality at Duke Divinity School. The event will take place Friday December 5th from 10am - 3pm and is free of charge. We only ask that you RSVP with Sara Sheppard to reserve a spot. Please include your name, phone number, church affiliation and mailing address. This event is underwritten by the Lilly Endowment.
Join us Thursday January 8 -Saturday Janaury 10, 2009 for an exploration of call. Call to the River is a time for reflection and for looking forward; toward your call. What did it look/feel like in the beginning and what or where is it now? How has it changed and where has it led you??
We will gather at Manidoken Retreat Center near Harpers Ferry, WV. Cost is $150.00 for room and board. Register by going to http://www.calltotheriver.blogspot.com/ This event is co-sponsored by the Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, Faith at Work, Wesley Theological Seminary and Sacred Fire Coaching.
Hope to see you soon and one or all of these events.
peace and grace,
Sara and Jason
