The Dallas Emergent Cohort seeks to gather people from the Dallas area for conversation, fellowship, encouragement and community as we engage in emerging issues. Regardless of your level of familiarity with the conversation, we invite you to come and join us!


Cohort Meeting in October, Tuesday Oct. 12th

We will get together this month at Tin Star in Preston Center.

Kenton brought up an interesting topic for us to discuss this week.
"Is Baptism the new Circumcision?"

If you are intrigued with the discussion, or if you just want to join us because it's been a while, it will be good to see you.

As is typical, we'll meet at 7PM at Tin Star on Tuesday, October 12th.


September Cohort on Tuesday, the 14th at 7PM

Ephesians 2:8-9

That’s the passage we will be discussing as we regather the cohort after our Summer break. Kenton will spearhead the discussion and is preloaded with Danielle's theory. (see, it won’t be all deconstruction!)

We will be back at our regular Tin Star location in Preston Center.
Hope to see you at 7PM Tuesday night as we get back into our regular 2nd Tuesday meetings.


Upcoming Conferences

Hello everyone! We thought you all might be interested in knowing about these conferences coming up. Find out more information below!

Emergent Village Theological Conversation: November 1-3, 2010

The 2010 Emergent Village Theological Conversation will feature a global panel of theologians- Musa Dube of Botswana, Richard Twiss of the Lakota Sioux tribe, and Colin Greene of the UK. Engaging issues ranging from mission to postcolonialism to the AIDS epidemic, the Conversation is sure to be as rich as it is lively. Our panel of theologians will share stories and parables from their traditions, discuss their latest theological research, and challenge the Western American Church to engage and welcome voices from the margins.

Don't miss this opportunity to become more familiar with theologians doing remarkable work in their respective (and distinct!) contexts. We are certain it will be a landmark year in what has become Emergent Village's signature event. For more information and to register, go here.

New Testament Professor N.T. Wright will be speaking in Dallas on November 13, hosted by the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas. Register here.

The Center for Action and Contemplation is hosting an Emerging Christianity Conference December 3-4 in Ft. Worth. From their website: "Join three days of lively conversation about the “emerging” future of Christianity and Non-dualism, a foundational belief of emerging Christians throughout the world.
Featured Speakers: Richard Rohr, Suzanne Stabile, Tony Jones, Phyllis Tickle and Brian McLaren." Find more info here.


Cohort Meetings for June/July

It has been typical to not meet in the summer months.
This will be true this summer as well in the months of June and July.
Feel free to write us with topic ideas as we plan to get back together after this break.

As we typically meet the 2nd Tuesday of every month August 10th would be our next time to meet.


May Cohort Meeting, May 11th

I am late in posting this, but we will be getting together tonight. There have been a handful of ideas thrown around as topics for discussion, but no clear winner. So we will be happy to entertain your ideas for this evening. If nothing else, it will be good to see you and spend some time together.

As typical, we will meet at Tin Star restaurant in Preston Center at 7PM. The restaurant is right near the corner of Northwest Hwy and Preston Road.

April Cohort -Tuesday April 13

We have had a few conversation and personal circumstances in the past few months that have prompted us to want to speak about Muslim/Christian relations at this months meeting. I hope you will plan to join us.

As is typical, we will meet at the Tin Star restaurant in Preston Center on Tuesday evening, April 13th, at 7PM.

March Cohort - Tuesday, March 9th, 7PM

We are going to be jumping on the pop-culture band wagon this coming cohort meeting and taking time to discuss the movie, Avatar. If you haven't seen the movie yet, you are in good company. A few of us have seen it, however, and the rest of us have heard enough about the themes of the film to make it something worth talking about.

So, I hope you'll join us. As is typical, we will gather at Tin Star in the Preston Center shopping area. See you at 7PM.

By the way, we had decided we were going to discuss this even before Mr. Driscoll decided to pop off about the movie, but this came to our attention recently.

He thinks he has never been accused of being a fundamentalist??
