Coming back soon. But first a plug for the emerging church forum.

OK. That month of silence was really good for me. And, [you add], it was really good for us also!

Thanks. I appreciate that.

I plan to start blogging again here really soon. I have some clarity on how this blog needs to get back to its roots as a global mission blog. More on that later. Right now, we are about to drive across Germany to reach Poland where the Slot Art Festival takes place next week.

Some highlights next week.

I am moderating a panel discussion on the global emerging church on Wednesday July 8th, at 3pm.

Global Emerging Church: Is the movement dead? stopped? run its course? OR is its still fulfilling its objective and running its course? Where did it come from and where is it going? How does it differ from continent to continent?

Participants include:

Jonny Baker (CMS, for UK

Ian Nicholson (24/7 Prayer) for Europe

Wolfgang Fernandez (Next-Step) for Asia.

Becky Garrison for USA

Olgavaro Bastos Jnr (Tribal Generation) for South and Central America

I am also speaking at a main session on the last day in Sy Rogers place because Sy has to leave a day early. And I am helping out with the Global Roundtable for Emerging and Underground Leaders. If you make it to SLOT, please say hello. The last time we were at Slot was 2 years ago and my thoughts and pictures were blogged here.

    I so wish I could be there with you and Becky and all the others who are gathering. I hope someone will be recording audio/video so the rest of us can hear and/or see the discussions and learn from our non-U.S. counterparts.
    Please give my greetings to Trevor, Sy, and Jonny!
