I will be participating in a panel discussion called “Questioning the Answers: the emerging church critique of evangelicalism” on Thursday, Sept. 20th at 7pm in the northwest suburbs. It’s hosted by up/rooted, the Chicago area emerging cohort.
Here is the announcement sent out by Jon Bernbaum at up/rooted north.
The panel discussion will be on the emerging church’s critiques of evangelicalism, and consideration of the way forward. The panelists are Scot McKnight, professor at North Park University and prodigious blogger and author; Wayne Johnson, professor and director of the MDiv program at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and former dean of students; and Dave Fitch, professor at Northern Baptist Seminary, pastor at Life on the Vine, and slightly less prodigious blogger and author.
Each of us will critique a particular response of the emerging church to evangelicalism (think issues of authority, church structure, worship, preaching, role of Scripture, etc.) and we’ll get a chance to engage in open discussion with everyone on these crucial issues.
Come out and join us as we gather together around the emerging conversation on Thursday evening, September 20th at 7pm at Life on the Vine in Long Grove, IL.
