Emergence Christianity: A National Gathering!

And here you thought the Emergent Church died.  But no, apparently the EC is alive and well, thanks to Tony Jones, Doug Pagitt and New-Ager Phyllis Tickle. Tickle beleives that throughout history, the Christian Church evolves every 500 years or so, and we are ripe for another paradigm shift.

The ecumenical event will be held at a Catholic church next January, put on by JoPa Group, which describes itself as an “Innovative Events and Social Media Consulting” company, and home to “such innovative brands as Social Phonics, Christianity21, the Church Planters Academy, and JoPa Publishing.”
According to the promotion, the event is all about promoting Tickle’s newest book, Embracing Emergence Christianity: Phyllis Tickle on the Church’s Next Rummage Sale.
Here is the publisher’s description of this latest apostasy:
Phyllis Tickle invites us to join her in examining the changing face of Christianity and culture. Phyllis surveys 2000 years of Western history, identifying the great upheavals that occur in Western culture and Christianity every 500 years. The last was the Great Reformation of the 1500’s; the next is happening now. What are the implications of this Great Emergence, both culturally and spiritually? What are the key questions and issues that need to be addressed? Where might we be headed next? And, perhaps most importantly, where are you, at this moment? Might you be an emergence Christian?
Tickle is the founding editor of the Religion Department of Publishers Weekly, and is frequently quoted by media sources including USA Today, Christian Science Monitor, the New York Times, PBS, NPR, the Hallmark Channel, plus innumerable blogs and websites. In addition to lectures and numerous essays, articles, and interviews, Tickle is the author of over two dozen books in religion and spirituality, most recently The Great Emergence, How Christianity is Changing and Why, and The Words of Jesus, A Gospel of the Sayings of Our Lord.

One Response to “Emergence Christianity: A National Gathering!”

    Who can resist such a sweet looking old lady? She could be your grandmother. Who wouldn't sit at her feet and wait for the apples to fall? Only those who no longer judge after what they see or hear but by the Spirit of God, The Holy Spirit, only these few will stand.

    Philippians 4
    8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

    May God keep us all
