Faith and Politics this Thursday at the Cohort

Hey everyone,
The Nashville Cohort reconvenes tomorrow from 11:30-1:00pm at the Flying Saucer in the Pool Room:
11 10th Ave. South
(Located Behind Union Station)
Nashville, TN 37203

We'll be discussing the mission of God as it relates to the politics in the United States using Shane Claiborne's "Jesus for President" as our jumping off point.
It would also behoove us all to take at look at yesterday's Tennessean and note the article about 33 pastors who planned to intentionally endorse a candidate from the pulpit yesterday. Each of these sources will provide us plenty to talk about on Thursday.

Call in your lunch orders by 10:30am to ((615) 259-3039) if you can. The menu can be found here under the "Food" tab.

Shane Claiborne will actually be in town this week (we tried to get him to meet with us and he didn't have time) and is speaking at several venues.
Below is a list. Visit each venues website for specifics. Check him out if you get the chance!

Monday, 9/29: Lipscomb University, 8pm.
Tuesday, 9/30: Westminster Presbyterian, 7:30-9:00
Wednesday, 10/1: Belmont University, 10am.

upcoming events : the great emergence

as mentioned at today's cohort meeting. various folks are associated with a day & half event in early december with phyllis tickle and her latest book "the great emergence." here is a bit of a write up.
The Great Emergence National Event is a unique and freshly designed event built on innovative adult learning techniques including interaction, participation, and inspiring content on the current state of and future possibilities for Christianity.

Around the four main sessions with Phyllis Tickle, participants will also enjoy the daily office—thrice daily times of prayer—based on Phyllis Tickle’s bestselling book, The Divine Hours, in the majestic and historic Cathedral of St. Mary in Memphis, Tennessee, which will be bedecked with Advent greenery.
seems like a few folks are interested in going. maybe we can apply for a 'staff' discount and do some carpool to be in good graces of our checking accounts.

upcoming events : invisible children & outdoor festival

i was sent this from one of my fellow tribe youth ministers. she's actually one of the folks listed on the poster. if you are into the invisible children mission then this is certainly something to be a part of. if you've never heard of the IC then brief yourself and then try it out.
