Introducing Learning Adventures

Last year, Tony Jones and Brian McLaren led a Fuller Seminary Doctor of Ministry cohort in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota. We mention it not only because we think you’ll enjoy the restful two and a half minute  video below which captures people talking about the experience of thinking about Creation while watching the sun reflect off lake water, but also because Boundary Water canoeing is one of the first expeditions on the calendar for our new endeavor called Learning Adventures.

Learning Adventures will combine theology, education, and travel to invite participants to learn while immersed in an environment relevant to what they’re studying.

While we don’t have all the dates yet, in addition to brushing up on your paddling, you might want to take a quick crash course in Italian or maybe Hebrew or Aramaic because destinations like Italy and the Holy Land have been coming up a lot lately.

Stay tuned.

We’re making room for your friends.

If you were present at Christianity 21 in 2009 in Minneapolis, or if you saw the heart-stirring highlights video of it that Don Heatley put together (below), you’ll understand why we’ve already had to revisit our plans to hold the event in a church that could only seat several hundred.

If you weren’t there, then watch the video and you might suspect why we had to move to a bigger venue.

Thankfully, Central Christian Church located along Cherry Creek in Denver has volunteered its facility for the next chapter of Christianity 21. So start fare-watching those flights to Denver so you can join us at one of Colorado’s oldest congregations as returning friends and new ones reconvene January 9-11, 2014.

Christianity 21. 2014. We’d love to see you. And all your friends. We just made room for them.
