upcoming opportunities

This week there are some valuable opportunities for those in West Michigan to learn and dialogue about contemporary issues in the church. 

On Thursday night Michael Horton will speak about his new book, Christless Christianity, at the Baker Book House on East Paris, just north of the E. Beltline (7:00).

On Friday night I will be at the same location and time to speak about the issues raised in Don’t Stop Believing.  If you can only do one, I’d recommend going to hear Michael, but of course I hope that a few people will also show up to dialogue with me. 

 

Next Monday, March 31, our seminary is hosting a one-day event called “Who’s Got Next?”, in which we will examine the challenges and opportunities of leading the church of Jesus Christ in our postmodern generation.

Jim Grier, our resident philosopher, will address issues of epistemology.  I will fill the role of systematic theologian and explore the questions surrounding soteriology.  And Cornerstone’s president, Joe Stowell, will help us think through these issues from a pastoral perspective.

This event is only $25, with a buffet lunch included, and it’s also a good time to connect with other ministry leaders.  We are expecting a good crowd, easily over 100, but there is still time to sign up if you want to come.  Do so by Wednesday at https://www3.cornerstone.edu/eventreg/whosgotnext/

  1. Looking forward to seeing you Friday.

  2. Thanks for the info. I didn’t know about the seminar on Monday. I’ll see you there.

  3. “If you can only do one, I’d recommend going to hear Michael, but of course I hope that a few people will also show up to dialogue with me.”

    Quite convenient that both of your names are Michael. But I doubt that you’d talk about yourself in the third person. Thanks for the heads up.

  4. Next Monday, March 31, our seminary is hosting a one-day event called “Who’s Got Next?”

    Which is it? Monday or the 31st? Or is my calendar just wrong?

  5. It’s on Monday, but it’s going to run so long that it might blend into the 31st. I put both dates down just to cover all the bases.

  6. Mike,
    I just wanted to say I really enjoyed your talk about “Don’t Stop Believing” at Baker, quite happy to get a chance to meet.

  7. Mike:
    I enjoyed your talk at Baker. I wonder if being “caught in the middle” is a good thing? If you weren’t, then you wouldn’t have written DSB and the conversations had last night at Baker, wouldn’t have happened. I wonder how many others will gravitate to a more centralized place.?

    Mason:
    It was good to meet you there, too. It’s always nice to meet the writer behind a blog in person!
    Blessings,
    AR
