Blah... will be back in action in its London evening format in the summer. In the meantime we are partnering with Moot in the study day below which promises to be a good one.
Marks of the Emerging Church: 12th March 2005 10-3.30pm
Pete Rollins from the Ikon community in Northern Ireland (a group which describes itself as iconic, apocalyptic, heretical, emerging and failing) is a philosopher who has come to believe that the emerging church presents a singular, unprecedented opportunity to transform the theological and moral architecture of the Christian community. By combining his research into mysticism and post-modern theory, alongside his development of an emerging church community, Pete promises to present what he believes is a vital message concerning both the possibilities and dangers, which the emerging church currently faces. His challenge is as simple as it is profound… if we do not become theologically self-aware the emerging church will end up as little more than the latest attempt to make church cool.
Pete gave a provocative seminar at Greenbelt last year that presented a theology for the emerging church. This is a good chance to catch up with Pete in London.
