Tomorrow I will be in Sheffield with CMS folk – including bloggers Jonny Baker, Mark Berry and Richard White. Richard spent some time here in Orkney with me last week. Richard and I will be discussing our ideas on how we could help people start thousands of new missional communities in UK over the next 5 years and the others will be telling us why this will not work. Paul Thaxter and Bob and Mary Hopkins will be there to keep us in line. [If you want to meet with me, I have a free hour at Sheffield’s Devonshire Cat on Tuesday at 9pm and I could have lunch in Edinburgh on Thursday at noon. Let me know]
– Canon Chris Neal will hopefully share on “Mission movement” and how being part of a missional order may give much needed rhythms to simple cell/church movements.
– the England based CMS site emergingchurch.info has reigned as the number one google ranking for “emerging church” for a long time. It has been knocked off the top of the hill by Wikipedia’s entry.
– Jonny has just added a research page on EmergingChurch,info and kicked it off with his piece on Labyrinths and ritual.
