Emergent Church Cohort - Triad, NC

If you are in the Triad of the lovely state of North Carolina (Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and all points in between) and want to get together to talk, share, question, listen, and think together about the church's relationship to the emerging culture around - THEN - come on out and join the conversation.

gone underground

the emergent triad seems to have gone underground.

We had no takers at our last meeting...which seems odd given how many people are on the rum-runners list. I realize that kevin sinclair, tripp fuller, zach roberts are all gone but I had hopes to continue meeting.

Beverly and I are continuing work on starting an emergent faith community here in Winston-Salem with some others like Linda J.

if newcomers ever want to meet you can reach beverly or me via the website.

March 27 "The Atonement Cohort"

Hey Cohorteers,
Thursday March 27 we will have our march cohort. It will be after the rush of Holy Week, so hopefully more people will be able to be there that last years poorly timed gathering. We will meet 730 @ krankies. I am suggesting we discuss the atonement since it has come up before and is seasonally fitting. So if anyone has an article they want to put out for sharing post or link it to the group page. Looking forward to seeing you all. Feel free to evangelize and bring a friend.

Some liturgy by Sharlande Sledge

Here is some liturgy by Sledge that I particularly like.....I shared it at our last cohort get-together ....when Pete and I broke bread together at Krankies.......

God of all times and places, we move into (toward) this new year as travelers seeking the shelter of your presence in all our comings and goings. Like the magi we move from familiar surroundings, crossing borders to enter unknown times and places.

But we study maps and guidebooks, not stars. We are guided by calendar and agendas, not faithful attention to the signs of your presence. Transform the foreign geography of our lives into a land of promise.

Guide our hearts as we sort through our possessions for the things we will carry on our trips. Enlarge our tents. May we welcome guests with your hospitality, offering a place for them to tell stories or to rest their voices and their souls.

Make of our homes a sanctuary. Acquaint us with the pain of those who seek refuge, a safe place from harm. Remind us that your children do not have to be physically homeless to be without a home.

Extend our tables. Multiply our invitations. Gudie us to persons who need to share a meal rather than eat alone.

Move us into the landscape of your world. Change us from the observers of ancient scenes to lively participants in the drama of today.

Remind us that the word is not confined to an address, a country, or a government but came to live where we live, full of grace and truth and humanity and hospitality.

Assure us that we do not travel alone. Guide us through stretches of desert to the oasis of your love. Shine your Light on our path, showing us the way to those who sit in darkness.

Help us carry the memory of home, dropping it like bread crumbs in the laps of those along our journey, so that they, and we, may find our way back to you, our eternal home.
