"Mainline Emergents" seminar in Atlanta in January

Columbia Seminary and the Atlanta Emergent Cohort are co-sponsoring Columbia's annual January Seminars this year, "Mainline Emergent/s: Conversations in Theology, Hope, and Practice," January 30 - February 1. Dixon and I thought it would be interesting if several of us from the Nashville Cohort went down together, not only for the seminars themselves but also for interaction with folks from the Atlanta cohort.

Featured speakers include Diana Butler Bass, Brian McLaren, Doug Pagitt, Nanette Sawyer, Karen Ward, Tony Jones, with Troy Bronsink leading the worship ... a little something for everyone, whether you're mainline or not, denominational or not.

The event will take place on the campus of Columbia in Decatur, GA. Registration is $275 (includes lunch both days), though there are a limited number of $75 registrations available to folks who work in settings where they don't have continuing education funds (if you're interested in this option, e-mail ericksons@ctsnet.edu ... pre-approval is required) . Housing is available on the campus or in nearby hotels.

The seminary strongly urges folks to register online at http://www.peopleware.net/index.cfm?siteID=572&event=2007LL&subeventDisp=CESEMJAN .

I'm glad to be a clearing house for folks who want to carpool down together. Please make your reservation and then e-mail me at jim.kitchens@secondpresbyterian.net to let me know you're signed up. I'll get in touch with everyone who contacts me in early January to make carpooling and any other arrangements.

In Christ,

I'm certainly in. Can we go ahead and reserve a few hotel rooms ASAP, to get space near the seminary?

(Sorry, I'd email but my email has been down most of the week.)
