We won't be (formally) gathering during the months of June, July, or August. We'll see you in September. If you are interested in a cohort summer BBQ, contact Jason. It'll be a good time to gather together and bring families--probably on a Saturday afternoon. If you have questions about the cohort, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Until fall, Tim
In September, mark your calendars for The Story We Find Ourselves In conference, September 18-21 at Cedar Ridge Community Church. It looks to be a great event and is co-sponsored by Emergent, Wesley Theological Seminary, and Cedar Ridge.

The institute will be hosted by Cedar Ridge Community Church in Spencerville, MD September 18 - 21, 2006. Tuesday evening will feature a 19th century style camp meeting in a historic outdoor Tabernacle on the grounds of Peach Orchard Christian Retreat and Campground located across the street from Cedar Ridge.

Come next week to the last (formal--as if we are ever that formal!) gathering of the Baltimore Emergent cohort before the summer. We will have a variety of discussion topics inculding inovative approaches to worship, great books to read over the summer, thoughts on the DaVinci code, and more. Bring your own thoughts, ideas, and questions to contribute. We will also look ahead to how we ant to shape our plans for the fall (when and where to meet, who to invite to present to us, etc.) As usual we will meet from 7-9pm in the back room at the Bare Bones Grill in Ellicott City. All are invited. Hope to see you next Wednesday, Tim
