Missed our big pub night? Hear what was discussed…

Steve Knight is stoic

Phil Shepherd of the Eucatastrophe dropped me a note today to let me know the podcast was up from our Tuesday mega pub night over in Ft Worth. Steve Knight (our guest for the evening) and Phil lead conversation about the participatory church, a church whose DNA structure is changed constantly by the people who pass through and participate in it. Later on, they get into some questions about the emergent/emerging church and other things. Click the link below and enjoy. (Look for the audio link at the bottom of the post.)


108 people @ the pub

Before our big pub night, Dr. Mike Graves, preaching professor at St Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, challenged us to look at the gospel of Luke as being about one thing – “unhindered”. Don’t hinder the good news. Don’t hinder love being shared. Don’t hinder real authentic community being formed. Don’t hinder the movement of the spirit.

Hours later, nothing hindered 108 folks from gathering in the upstairs room at the Flying Saucer to talk faith, church, hope, and future.

I give special thanks to our partners, the Eucatastrophe and the Search, for co-hosting and getting the word out. I also am thankful for my friend, Steve Knight, sharing some of his story and thoughts to spur our conversation. I am especially thankful for everyone who came out, from seminary professors to new friends, wanderers to truth tellers, and all spaces in between.

Meeting in a pub for events like this is not a gimmick. All we attempt to do is create the kind of space that we have come to know by being in the presence of God. There is no judgment, but there is a lot of laughter. There are no easy answers, but there are tons of good questions. There are no hurt feelings… just acceptance. If that appeals to you, join us on one of our regular pub nights, every Tuesday, 7:30 pm. See you soon!


mega pub night!

Pub Night with Steve Knight - Feb. 7, Flying Saucer, Ft Worth, TX

I’m excited to share about our big pub night with the Search and the Euc on February 7, 8:30-10:30 PM, over in Ft Worth. We’ll hear from a friend and fellow missional church guy, Steve Knight, enjoy some great food and beverages, and have a fun time. Steve just did a whole series on Participatory church, using some of the lingo from social networking to wonder how our faith communities might change and adapt to use these kinds of ways of thinking in our worship and work. He’ll share some of that and then open up the conversation for questions and ideas from the crowd. As always, the event is going to be informal and open to people from all varieties of spirituality.

You can RSVP on Facebook today.

BTW, the Search will be hosting worship that evening as part of the Wells Lecture series, so you can head over for worship at 7 PM and then join us for the pub night at the Flying Saucer.
