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!


Tony Jones this week, Doug Pagitt next week

Hello everyone,

Thanks to everyone who came out for a great conversation last Tuesday about Tony Jones' new book. A reminder that Tony will be in town THIS Thursday, March 20th, for a book signing at the Barnes and Noble across from NorthPark Mall in Dallas. The event begins at 7pm. You can get a map and all the information you need here.

Also, Doug Pagitt, Pastor of Solomon's Porch and author of a number of great books in the emerging church conversation, will be in town to meet with the Dallas and Fort Worth cohorts on Wednesday, March 26th at 7pm. We'll be meeting at I Fratelli restaurant, which is located on Macarthur Blvd just off 635 near DFW airport. Find a map here.

Doug's new book is coming out in the next few weeks called A Christianity Worth Believing. You can find out more about that here. And if you want more information on Doug, check out his brand new website here.

Hope to see you for these special events!


Cohort Review and a New Possibility

The cohort had a new location and great conversation last night at Tin Star.
For those who came for the first time, thanks for what you are adding to the growing conversation.

It sounds like Tin Star was a good fit for our meeting space, perhaps that will be a venue change we will make permanent. Let us know what you think about that change.

Also, there is a possibility that Doug Pagitt can stop in and visit with the cohort in a couple of weeks while he is in town. It isn't definite yet, but it looks like we could have some of his time on Wednesday, March 26th. As it becomes something we can definitely schedule, we'll be sure to communicate here and in your inbox. If we don't have your email address yet, be sure to shoot it our way and we can add you to that distribution list.


Time/Location Change

Hi all,

If you didn't get the email to let you know, we are now meeting at 7:30pm tomorrow night (Tuesday, March 11) at Tin Star. It is located at Preston and Northwest Highway. Bring your copy of "The New Christians" and be ready for a good conversation!

Also, if you want to be on the email list, send me a note at and I will add you.

See you tomorrow!
