I think I’ve blogged about this before. I’m a part of a group of emergent minded people who happen to still believe in the denominational structure of church called Presbymergent. Being a presbyterian, some people I know thought it a good idea to start our own sub-section of the emergent movement to affect change and start conversation in our denomination.
I was asked to be a part of the initial coordinating group, who’s role is to discern what the direction for this conversation is going to be amongst our denomination.
This week I’m headed to Louisville, Kentucky to be a part of this initial gathering of people to share, fellowship, support, think and dream about how we can further spread the discussion in the presbyterian denomination.
It will be great to meet a bunch of new people who are excited and passionate about being a relevant church in our post-modern culture as well as seeing some old and dear friends who I haven’t seen in a while.
I’m not sure if I’ll be blogging much during the week. Though I will be twittering for sure and I know others will be as well. We’ll be using the hashtag of #pmergent to identify our tweets during the week, which you can follow here.
I’m excited and ready to have some great conversations.

Here at Ryan’s house got in late tonight due to priceline picking what time your flights are when you name your own price. Missed the opening introductions, but I hear some people are getting in late tomorrow as well.
Troy Bronsink is staying at Ryan’s as well, haven’t seen that guy since we both we at the Emergent Village coordinating group a number of years ago. Already have a great feeling for what’s going to happen over the next few days.
Off to bed now, lots to do tomorrow.
