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!


The Great Emergence

Our October cohort gathering will take place on Tuesday, October 14th at 7pm, once again at Tin Star located at NW Hwy and Preston. We'll be talking about Phyllis Tickle's newest book, The Great Emergence, now available in bookstores and online. The book describes the emerging church movement as part of a larger historical context, done with Tickle's usual clarity and poetic sensibility. You can read more about the book here.

There is also a conference set for December in Memphis featuring a number of Emergent Village notables. You can get all the related information about that here.

Regardless of whether you pick up a copy of the book or not, we hope you can join us for good conversation on October 14th!


September Cohort in Review

Hey there.

Thanks to Dallas G. for showing up and being part of this month's conversation. Dallas took some time to give us some particulars on the upcoming PCPJ conference that was mentioned a couple of posts back.

This led us into a conversation about the difference between pacifism and actively peacemaking. It also brought up several questions about how the church negotiates life when it comes to voting, activism, and mundane life decisions (among other things). The conversation was quite lively when it comes to some recent decisions that "emergent church leaders" have made in endorsing political candidates. I'm sorry you may have missed it, but we look forward to seeing you next month.
