Hello friends!

I've been working for a couple of months now, organizing a conference to explore the possibilities for home-based Christian faith communities, usually referred to as house churches. I'm in the home stretch and wanted to encourage you all to check it out - it would be wonderful to have you there! It's set for Saturday, November 18th, 9-2 at St. Stephen's in West Saint Paul. Registration is $10 and includes lunch.

Speakers include a national leader in the 3dm discipleship and mission movement; a seminary student who came to faith in a Chinese house church; a pastor who's been active in conventional and house church settings for nearly 40 years; a grandmother in leadership at a local "house church" that happens to meet in a funeral home; and yours truly. But the main focus of the conference will be the conversation among the speakers and attendees, first to explore the pros, cons and unanswered questions about this way of being church, and then to reflect on whether the time has come to take action. (Spoiler alert: I will be taking the "Yes, it's time!" position on that last question.)

For full information, visit this page on my blog (bit.ly/UB-FPBlog) or go right to registration here (bit.ly/UB-Registration).

If you could help to spread the word on this it'd be a great help too.

Hope to see you there!

A beautiful slice of life from a daughter whose mother has Alzheimers sparked a reflection on Kingdom Come and the interpretation of Scripture with a dash of theodicy in the background.

The Church Isn't Dying, It's Just That The Bubble Has Finally Burst
I was talking about what "the end of Christendom" means to a family member and came up with an analogy you might find helpful. After the burst of the housing bubble and the great recession, I think the whole "bubble" idea is pretty familiar to folks. You ha...
