A Conversation on The Emerging Church

The Center for Action and Contemplation invites you to come to the first large gathering of Roman Catholic, Mainline Protestant, Evangelical, and other Christians seeking to explore the emergence and convergence together. You will be inspired by provocative speakers and spiritual leaders and engage in in-depth conversation about our shared quests for:
  • A fresh understanding of Jesus
  • Spirituality that links contemplation and action
  • Social justice and holistic mission
  • Authentic community
The line-up of speakers is very impressive: Father Richard Rohr, Brian McLaren, Phyllis Tickle, Shane Claiborne, Alexie Torres-Fleming, and others. Read more about the presenters

Read accounts by these authors and others in the Oct-Dec issue of Radical Grace (pdf format)
See clips of Richard Rohr's webcast on the Emerging Church

They will participate with us in three days of spiritual enrichment, challenge, and shared exploration as we envision what the Christian community can be and do in this generation and generations to come. See Schedule

And the conversations will continue after the conference, with Theology professor Dr. Bryan Froehle and Mennonite Pastor Anita Amstutz moderating a Post-Conference Continuing Conversation. Read More

Bread for the World is one of the organizations that have been invited to set up a display. Please visit our table.
