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!

Our first Dallas meeting

Hey everyone,

After the wave of interest we've seen from the lunch with Tony Jones and the recent Emergent Theological Conversation at Yale, we would love to get this cohort underway once again. Due to our expanding metroplex, we think it best to have two cohort meetings per month, one in Dallas and one in Fort Worth. In no way do we see these cohorts as separate, as we hope to cross-pollinate frequently. However we do realize that many of you are driving from different parts of the metroplex, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to be involved. And, if for some reason you cannot make one meeting, you can choose to drive a bit farther and go a different time that week. We hope this provides some flexibility for you as well.

To that end, we will have our first Dallas cohort meeting on Tuesday, March 21st at 8 p.m. We will meet at Tempest Tea, a tea room with a coffee shop atmosphere. Tempest is located at 5600 West Lovers Lane, between the Tollway and Inwood (www.tempesttea.com). It is two doors down from Cafe Express in the Pavilion shopping center. The great people at Tempest have reserved the back area for our use, and are offering us 10% off all drinks.

The nature of our first discussion will be, "Why are you interested in the Emergent conversation?" We hope it will be a time to get to know one another, talk about where we are, and about what topics, books, theological viewpoints we would most like to discuss in the coming months. And, in the spirit of Lent, we will be asking, "Do you think there is a theological thought, idea or practice God is calling you to give up -or take up- in order to grow in faith?"

We hope to see you there!
