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!


Church Basement Roadshow and Jesus for Dallas

If you have not been keeping up with the summer shenanigans of a few of our friends, Tony Jones, Doug Pagitt, and Mark Scandrette you can keep up with their traveling-parody-roadshow-book tour that is called the Church Basement Roadshow.

They have a few tour stops in a city near you.

You can see them here, in Dallas, on Friday, July 18th in an event hosted by both Journey and City Church.

Many of you already know this, but the Jesus For President book tour is also
going to be in town that weekend, in Southlake on Thursday, July 17th. So Thursday and Friday opportunities for people to go see two great events. The Jesus For President one is free.


Report on Last Week's Discussion

Just to give a quick report on last week's was lively, well attended and everyone seemed to leave friends. We also had the chance to meet some folks who were new to the cohort this time around. There are a few who we had the chance to meet at an event that Brian McLaren hosted a few months back who have been meaning to join us for an evening -- We are glad you made the time; it was great to meet you all.

Feel free to email me if you are not currently on our email distribution list. I'll be happy to included you with those communication reminders about our monthly get-togethers.

It looks like we will be able to have a discussion led this next month by our fried Gary from the Interfaith Environmental Alliance. There was some question as to our meeting space for this next month...we do have the meeting room at La Madeleine's on Mockingbird and Central reserved for this occassion. We hope you can plan to join us July 8th at 7:30.


Salvation Discussion, June 10th, Tuesday

Last month's discussion was well attended and lively. It brought up a couple of requests for our next cohort meeting. We will meet again at Tin Star at Preston Center at 7:30PM.

We received a couple of requests to discuss the word and meaning behind the idea of "being saved." If you have not unpacked these topics before and would like to join this discussion, feel free to show up and look around for the crowd that slowly finds each other.

I should also say that we aren't trying to pick a fight by discussing this topic. The natural flow of our conversation has prompted a couple of questions that will be interesting for us to talk about, but we wouldn't plan on facilitating a fight or even a debate. I promise, we can all leave friends! We have so far.

Hope to see you there.
