Moravian Conference on EC


Moravian Theological Seminary in Bethlehem, Pa. will host Brian McLaren as part of its Zeisberger Lectures on Friday, April 21, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. And the best part is -- it's free!

Here's their website description of this Conference on the Emergent Church:

What is the emergent church? A movement? A new way of doing “incarnational theology”? A Christian beachhead in cyberspace? A state of mind? Encompassing all of these, it’s a way of being Christian that hearkens back to the first century, when followers of the Way found themselves proclaiming the Gospel to a sophisticated, religiously pluralistic, and skeptical but spiritually hungry culture. At the same time, it is a response to a wired, postmodern generation that favors experience over doctrine and relationships over institutional structures. In this conference, Brian McLaren, one of the movement’s leading thinkers, will share his experience with and reflections about the emergent church as a laboratory for being Christian in the twenty-first century.
