The Church in America is changing, and Origins is at the forefront.
Origins is a worldwide network of leaders who follow Jesus thriving on the diversity and creativity growing in the Church. 

It’s an externally-focused network of creatives, business leaders, activists, educators, and leaders that exist to love humanity and serve the mission of Jesus.
If you want to understand and experience the evolving face of Christianity, one that represents the diversity, passion, and creativity found in the ways of Jesus, Origins’ inaugural event is the place to find it. It is an active- not passive-event. 
 On Friday, July 23, attendees will serve residents of Los Angeles through practical service projects. They will partner with leading organizations in the city to serve the poor on Skid Row and learn how to facilitate community care from city leaders in a tour of Los Angeles.
On Saturday, July 24, in Club Nokia at L.A. Live, Origins will gather at its inaugural event to be insprired, renewed, and moved toward collaboration by leading thinkers in numerous fields of thought. 
Just a few of them include:
Erwin McManus is the catalyst behind Awaken, McManus Studios, and Mosaic and is widely known as an author, speaker, activist, filmmaker, and innovator who specializes in the field of developing and unleashing personal and organizational creativity, uniqueness, innovation and diversity. 
 Margaret Feinberg was recently named one of the ’30 Emerging Voices’ who will help lead the church in the next decade by Charisma magazine and one of the ’40 under 40′ who will shape Christian publishing by Christian Retailing. She has written more than two dozen books and Bible studies including the critically-acclaimed “The Organic God” 
 Scott Harrison is the founder of charity: water, an organization committed to bringing clean and safe water to over 1 billion people in the world. His work has been featured in over 300 media outlets including The New York Times, USA Today, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX news. 
The Origins Project is a network meant to spur activity, love and service. The inaugural event is an essential primer for anyone trying to understand the current Christian generation and an invitation to join in a movement changing the world.

Wow! As an aging baby boomer who was involved in the renewal and the Jesus Movement in the late ’70′s, this is tremendously exciting… an answer to prayers for the emerging gneration… and a fulfillment of many cautionary words to others who were praying (and to my own expectations) to expect that God’s 21st Century move would look very different than those of the past. So different that it could be easily missed.

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
