Missional New Monastic Emergent Church Workshop in January

Quick Links
Dear Ronald E. Robinson,

We've heard much for decades now about climate change in North American Christianity. Mainline decline. The rise of evangelicalism. Mushrooming megachurches and disappearing mid-sized congregations. Persons who claim to be spiritual but not religious. Post-Christian and post-Christendom North America. A remarkable increase in the de-churched and of persons who check "none" regarding religion.
But we also see significant renewal movements. Missional church. Emerging/emergent church. The new monasticism.
Woven through the climate change and movements of renewal are serious and provocative questions about the relationship between Christianity and "church."
We invite you to attend the Inaugural Re-Mind & Re-New Conference at Phillips Theological Seminary. The conference, formerly known as Ministers' Week, is an educational event designed to foster the renewal of participant's minds and spirits. Featured speakers include: Dianna Butler Bass, Nadia Bolz-Weber, Chris Haw, and Craig Van Gelder.
A registration fee of $90 inlcudes the program, coffee breaks and dinner on Tuesday evening. Registration deadline is January 9, 2012. Register for the conference here.
Free Webinar
The conference is preceded by a free webinar on November 30, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. CST. Led by Dr. Gary Peluso-Verdend, the webinar will briefly address conference topics and introduce participants to selected writings from featured speakers.
