Clergy Retreat

I spent the morning speaking at a clergy retreat for the Diocese of Bethlehem. I presented on "episcopal evangelism and the emerging church," and the response was wonderful. The best comment was from one priest who said the presentation helped them to dream. For those of you from the retreat (or others) who are checking into the blog, here are links to some of the resources and communities I referenced: Rowan Williams' Presidential Address to the Church of England 2003 General Synod, jonny baker's blog (check out the "worship tricks" link), Church of the Apostles in Seattle, mayBe in Oxford, fresh expressions, and see our sidebar for a link to the "mission-shaped church" pdf. In our February archive (on sidebar) look for the post "A Little Taste" to find a link to Si Smith's "40" illustrations. I presented a slideshow of the illustrations accompanied by Snow Patrol's "Run" -- which turned out to be a remarkably powerful combination (lots of not-so-dry eyes after that one). For those of you asking for a copy of this powerpoint, I'll contact Si about the possibilities of posting it here. Stay tuned.
