North Point Speaking Event

posted by xscot mcknight

On March 17, I’ll be speaking at North Point Community Church in Atlanta, primarily to their Starting Point leaders. I’ll be speaking about the nature of the gospel and how we can best engage our culture. North Point has made this event available to a limited outside audience for a modest fee. So, if you’re interested, please visit this site and click on the Starting Point Training link under “Events” to register. I hope to see you there!

Scot, We are using the Starting Point materials at our church. In fact, just finished our first 10-week group and are about to start our second. What a great, great process it is. Ours is a very seeker-friendly church, with lots of folks joining us with no church background, no experience with Scripture and only a limited understanding of the whole of the Christian story. We have found the material engaging and very relevant to folks, the conversational aspect non-threatening, the various additional resources which range from movies to suggestions to look at famous pieces of art, etc. to be really helpful to folks.
This kind of curriculum/program is so helpful to us as we work hard to assimilate folks into “the story of God” as they become a part of our Body. We’ve decided that the only way to help folks grow spiritually is to make sure they become deeply rooted in the right soil from the get go. (duh)
I bet you’ll have a great time! I’m kind of jealous … would love to hear more about what you are going to share with them AND what you learn from them, too.

Scot,
It figures! I’ll be visiting my folks that weekend, and won’t be in Atlanta. That church is not so terribly far from me, and I would love to have been in attendance, if only to shake your hand and say “hello.” I hope you enjoy your visit.

Scot,
Not that you know who I am, but I signed up today since this is in my backyard. One of my good friends who graduated with his MDiv in ’89 had you as one of his professors. Anyways, I look forward to trying understand more of where you are coming from in way of the “emergent” and “missional” ideologies. I am already appreciate Stetzer’s thinking on many issues.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
