The Great Emergence--Thursday 11/20

I just finished Phyllis Tickle's The Great Emergence: How Christianity is Changing and Why and found it accessible, interesting, and thought-provoking. Many people I know have already read it and have been impressed as well. I highly recommend that you get ahold of it and read it--it sets all the changes happening in Christianity and wider culture in a broader historical context--as well as forecasts a bit of future trends. The book will spark lots of possible discussion topics--even if you have not read the book. We will gather to discuss on Thursday the 20th of November at 8pm at the Chesapeake Wine Co. (2400 Boston St. 21224--in the same group of stores as Kiss Cafe. CWC faces Starbucks and is next to Subway.) We'll be in the back. See you then, Tim
