I would love to be heading up to Philly in October.
Of course, there’s a good chance the Angels will be facing off against the Phillies in the World Series. (Yeah, I know. Yankees blah blah blah.)
The main reason, though, is the The Scripture and Culture Seminar. This event being sponsored by two churches in the Ecclesia Network: The Well and Renew, pastored by my friends Todd and JR respectively.
From the registration page:
In the morning, Dr. Darrell Guder will help to answer the question: How do we read and interact with Scripture as communities of faith?
After lunch, Andy Crouch will wrestle with the question: How do we read and interact with culture as communities of faith?
This event is not just for pastors. This is for anyone – clergy or laity – who is interested in wrestling with the topic of how local churches can engage with their contexts more. And for those of who you are are planting churches or seriously considering being a church planter this seminar should be a priority for you to attend. More information about the seminar can be found here.
If a day trip to Philly is at all reasonable for you, then this is worth looking into.
Let me know if you’re going. I’ll send you an Angels cap.
