Hey Dwight, too bad we missed each other. I've been in DC about six months and working with a group here to do some new church plants. That was funny, because I had just been to the Bassilica and so I recognized the photos - we might of run into each other there!

I've really come to focus on working with the poor and creating an ecclesiology of the full community, where the poor have been the missing part, and so embracing all of life, but because the poor are so often left out, left behind, we must make a special effort first to look to them before we go on to everything else. The group here is wonderful because they are mentoring me so much with social justice stuff, but I bring emerging things to them which is new and fresh, so it's a real wonderful combination.

I looked at a lot of places as I sought to find where I would settle after 13 years in NYC, and I thought a lot about Seattle and Portland, but DC is where it ended up. See you around.

Introduction
Raised in the Anabaptist tradition, ordained by the C&MA and conversant with Emergent Village and the boarder avant church conversation I planted and pastored a network of simple churches before transitioning into missional leadership training.  I teach practical missional theology at The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology, and have published a number of books, including Thy Kingdom Connected, and Routes & Radishes.  I am active locally and internationally with missional and place-based church movements. I live on Seattle’s Eastside with my partner Lynette and son, Pascal.
