Emergent Discussion in the local church

Hey friends,

I'm in the midst of a series of Wednesday night presentations concerning movements within the Church. This week, I am doing (possibly part one) of a talk on Emergent.

If you are hip to it, you are invited to come. We have a little Eucharist at 6 pm in our chapel, and the presentation will go from 6:30-7:30 (officially) in our Narthex. Childcare is open to all, so bring the kids.

You can find us at 920 Caldwell Lane, 37204. Our website is www. if you want more INFO.

Cohort This Thursday

This Thursday the cohort welcomes Fritz Gutwien. Fritz is from the National Council of Churches Eco-Justice Program takes through a conversation regarding Christian environmentalism and how our 'advocacy' for creation care is a spiritual discipline. He's also a friend of Sam Davidson, but we won't hold that against him;)

Here's his Fritz's Bio:
Fritz Gutwein is currently Field Coordinator of the Climate and Energy Campaign at the National Council of Churches, Washington, DC. Prior to joining the NCC, Fritz was the Farm Bill Reform Organizer for the Presbyterian Hunger Program (USA) and Director of Crossroads Ministry of St. William Catholic Church in Louisville, Kentucky. An ordained Baptist minister and Presbyterian elder, Fritz is educated in international and religious studies from the University of South Florida and theology and ethics from Southern Seminary. His travels to Latin America and Africa as well as his experience as a therapeutic foster parent have opened Fritz's eyes to the needs of people living in poverty and have helped to make the spiritual practice of doing justice his life's passion.

Check him out:

As usual we will meet in the pool room at the Flying Saucer from 11:30-1:00.
Call in your lunch orders to 259-3039 by 10:30am if you're able.

See you there,
