Cohort Field Trip, June 7

The Nashville Cohort will have a field trip for our June meeting to hear Miroslav Volf present a keynote address at David Lipscomb's Christian Scholars Conference. 
The event is Thursday June 7 from 4:00-5:15pm.

Volf is the author of landmark book "Exclusion and Embrace" as well as his most recent, the excellent "A Public Faith".

The event is open to the public but we'll need to get organized to go together.

If you are interested in hearing Miroslav, email Dixon and let me know.
I'll start a list and then get back with the people who have responded with details.

Looking forward to attending this with you all!

More Sheep, More Goats this Thursday

Hey all,
Dixon here with an invitation to the May meeting of the Nashville Cohort, this Thursday from 11:30-1:00 in the pool room at the Flying Saucer.
11 10th Ave. South
(Located Behind Union Station)
Nashville, TN 37203

This month's conversation is an expanded installment of our series exploring the hard words of Jesus.
This time we'll continue our conversation about Matthew 25:31-46 and Jesus hards regarding the sheep and the goats.
How are missional Christians supposed to approach this text? What is Jesus getting at? If Christianity is about more than escaping hell after you die, what do we do with texts like this one?
Give it a read ( and come out this Thursday ready to get after it.

Don't forget Christ Church Cathedral has offered their parking lot to us free of charge (click the link for directions to 900 Broadway).
So, all that is required to park there is to go into the building and sign in as a guest of the cathedral.

See you Thursday,
