Yesterday we posted a piece from Sylvia Keesmaat in response to questions from Rob & Kirsten Vander Geissen-Reitsma who are teaching an interim course at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI (where they also coordinate the fabulous Festival of Faith and Music).
Strangely enough over here at ER, we talk about Empire from time to time, and we think it important to work our way through the questions of our own implication in the evil and oppression we see in the world. In that same vein, we’re excited to be participating in the upcoming Evolving Church Conference in Oakville, Ontario.
Brian Walsh and Sylvia Keesmaat will both be presenting workshops, and the entire Empire Remixed crew has something cooking to close out the conference with a bang.
It’s not often that you get to hear from Marva Dawn, Stanley Hauerwas and Walter Wink all at the same place, and it will be great to see what fires are ignited here in Canada as a result of this gathering. We’re pretty stoked about the conference, and hope that you’ll be able to join us on March 21, 2009, to challenge and to be challenged by speakers, workshops, and (perhaps most importantly), engaging in conversations that matter with one another.
