Emergent group to meet Jan. 30, discuss 'Everything Must Change'

Please join the Eastern Iowa Cohort of Emergent Village at its next meeting 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 30 at House of Aromas coffeehouse, 119 2nd St. in Coralville, where we'll discuss Brian McLaren's new book, "Everything Must Change: Jesus, Global Crisis and a Revolution of Hope." Click here for a map and gallery of photos showing the location.

In the meantime, Brian's Website has some resources to help people put into action some of the ideas he proposes in his book. Here's a PDF to a discussion guide that will eventually be on a page where visitors can swap ideas and stories about their own efforts. I encourage you to print off a copy and bring it to the meeting -- it's loaded with some great, practical ideas for living out the Gospel of Jesus!

Those who haven't read the book are still welcome to participate in a growing, generative friendship among missional Christians seeking to love the world in the Spirit of Jesus Christ. For more information, call Stephen in Iowa City at 319-621-5263 or Lon in Cedar Rapids at 319-393-6796.

I recently listened to an interview of Brian McLaren on the Emergent Village Podcast. He talks about his book and for those who have not read the book before our meeting this is a good audio primer. Check it out here.

Steve, I just noticed the Iowa feel you added to the blog. Nice ;)

Thanks! You probably caught me in the middle of tweaking it a bit. Thought it needed a bit of a makeover. See ya!
