Watching the State of the Union???

A number of churches are hosting opportunities for people to gather to watch the President's State of the Union address on Tuesday (1/31). They are being called "The State of Our Values" and are being coordinated by Sojourners. For more info. on an event in your area or to host an event, visit sojo.net. One church in the Baltimore-area that is hosting a Watch is Kittamaqundi Community Church in Columbia (5410 Leaf Treader Way). The pastor there is Heather Kirk-Davidoff who has been active in Emergent. Check it out! (and see you on Monday, of course, for our discussion with Brian McLaren)

January 30th--with Brian McLaren

We are going to meet on a Monday this month in order to accomodate Brian's international travel schedule. So January 30th at 7pm at Bare Bones Grill is our next gathering. Spread the word and invite others who are interested to join us for conversation with Brian McLaren. Reading Brian's draft article "Church Emerging" ahead of time would be good preparation for Brian's current thinking. For a copy of the article, send an e-mail to emergentbaltimore@gmail.com Head back through the bar towards the bathrooms. Across from the bathrooms there is a door on the right. Inside will be the Baltimore Emergent Cohort. See you then, Tim
