The Missio Conference will be held in Cincinnati on Sept 29-October 1.

MISSIO is… A gathering of emerging church leaders and fresh expressions practitioners for conversation and collaboration in (re) imagining church in ways that are radically incarnational and contextual to embody the Gospel and Reign of God in today’s culture. This will be an opportunity for people in traditional congregations to dialogue with leaders of emerging Christianity, to discover innovative resources for building community through radical hospitality, emergent worship, and missional church planting within a postmodern and post-secular world. Together, we will explore what it means to be what the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, calls a “mixed-economy church,” where traditional congregations and new expressions of church work together to participate in God’s mission in the world.

ERB editor Chris Smith, will be leading a session on Slow Church, based on a book on this theme that he is co-writing with John Pattison.

No Longer Strangers:
A Conversation on the Church and Immigration

Immigration is one of today’s most pressing issues, one on which there is much fear, misunderstanding and tension. We believe that in the church community – where, despite our ethnic heritages, we are brothers and sisters – we can begin to untangle the misunderstandings and seek justice and reconciliation together.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this important conversation – in English and Spanish – on the church and immigration.

Main Speaker:
Daniel Carroll Rodas, Author of: Christians At the Border

When: Friday evening April 8 and Saturday April 9, 2011

Where: Englewood Christian Church / Indianapolis

A    Rooted People - Conference

**** WEBSITE UPDATED THIS WEEK WITH
THE MAIN  SPEAKERS’ TOPICS !!!  *****

A Rooted People:
Church, Place and Agriculture
in an Urban World

Registration and more info: http://englewoodcc.com/rooted/

Spread the word with the Facebook e-vite


Ours is a world in which transportation is becoming extremely costly (as was highlighted by the massive costs of the BP Oil Spill) and yet at the same time is a world that is becoming increasingly urban. Common sense would seem to indicate that these trends will impact in a major way our food systems and the way we eat. Given these factors, what is the church’s redemptive role in caring for the health and wholeness (shalom) of not just humanity, but all creation? Englewood Christian Church has invited several speakers with rich experiences in sustainable agriculture to lead a conversation reflecting on this question and related ones about church, place, food, community and agriculture, and we invite you to join us.

Speakers:
* Fred Bahnson: Writer and Co-founder of Anathoth Community Garden
* Martin Price:
Former Director of Educational Concerns For Hunger Organization (ECHO)

* Ragan Sutterfield:
Arkansas Farmer/Writer, Author of FARMING AS A SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE

Workshops Lead By : Main speakers and others TBA

When: Friday Oct. 29 and Saturday Oct. 30, 2010

Where: Englewood Christian Church / Indianapolis
