Emerging Christianity Conference Dec. 3-4

September 13, 2010

We are excited about a conference Brite is co-hosting in December and want to make sure you know about this wonderful opportunity to hear and interact with some of the leading thinkers in the emergent church conversation.

Join three days of lively conversations about the “emerging” future of Christianity and Non-dualism, a foundational belief of emerging Christians throughout the world.  Richard Rohr, Phyllis Tickle, Brian McLaren, Tony Jones, and Suzanne Stabile will lead the exploration of: What is Non-dual thinking and being?How did Jesus model behaviors that weren’t limited by either/or thinking?; What rituals will help us empty out so we can be filled up with God’s love?How can the emerging church live more fully as the Body of Christ? and How can we take a new unifying consciousness back into our churches?
