Hi Ian, I was very impressed by your input at our recent Clergy Conference in Bendigo ... Chelle Wade and I are hoping to start some sort of conversation about the possibility of establishing a new monastic community somewhere here in Melbourne ... keep us in your prayers please.


thanks again,

I really haven't the vaguest idea what I'm doing, but Phyllis Tickle I like, and Ian I like too, and Vicki has a crazy grin, so what the hey!

Ian: I have benefitted greatly and been blessed by your post on the New Monasticism and by the Moot Community’s Podcasts. While I haven’t as yet become a part of any New Monasticism community, I will be doing my sabbatical with the Rutba House community in Durham, N.C. in February. We will see how things progress after that. I’ll keep you posted.-Fr. Tom+

Hi Ian sorry for the not so prompt reply. i must of missed email that said there was a comment...
I coordinate the Order of St Stephen in NZ.
below are our two statements:
• To build a network of young Anglicans aged 16 to 30 years, committed to their faith and to each other, living out ministry and mission through prayer, community and service.
• To maximize and resource the development of the Order of Saint Stephen across the diocese.

Tim Mathis is looking at establishing a sister order in the US. as you are friends with him im probably stating the obvious..

in NZ: Small group at the moment 6 members its existed since 2003 from Wellington Diocese.
Members develope a life rule around Prayer, community, and service.
I joined in 2005 then in 2007 Network coordinator steped down, i took over and began making the Order more of a National Order.
one of the things we now face is how dispersed we are spread accross NZ. Next thing will be to establish core groups in Diocese.

Order of St Stephen had exsisted in the 1960's and 70's in NZ thru Methodist church, then Anglican and Prebyterians started up their own also. They joined forces then over time it lost momentum and disappeared .

so what we have done is a relaunch but with a different focus. previously OSS was an internship type thing or seen as a cheap way to get a youth worker for a year or two....

now it is focused around Prayer Community and Service. 4 retreats a year, one of those being a national retreat where all members gettogher...

hope that helps to answer your question, once again sorry to take so long..

Hi Ian, I found my way to Anglimergent via a number of web links after reading a couple of books: Emerging Churches (Gibbs & Bolger) and The Church at the Centre of the City (Ed. Ballard). Looking forward to becoming more familiar with this great resource.

Hi Eliacin
Thanks for the complement - I am very glad you liked it. It was written from the guts - such a shame it has such a low profile, so any blog exposure can give, the better

Finally got thru The Becoming of G-d. Fantastic book. I was first interested in the topic by Leonardo Boff's books Trinity and Society and Holy Trinity, Perfect Community. I appreciate you bringing such a necessary discussion of the subject to our emerging communities.

Paz y esperanza,

Hi Ian,
Sorry to take a while in getting back to you. I've spoken with some folks and we can get two events in Melbourne and probably two events in Sydney also. Bishop Stephen Hale would be interested in a general worship event and a small residential styled workshop. Here in Sydney we can arrange a public event with Fuzz Kitto, and possibly two others with Church Army and or the college where Mike Frost teaches. If you've got a rough idea of dates we can build some events quite easily through the networks here. I'm likely to be at an international church army event from 24 October until 6 November. Let me know what you're up for. Cheers, Wayne

HI Dan
Thanks for the comment, yes the book is about the theology behind some of the emerging church - which is for me, deeply trinitarian. I have put up dates when I am speaking on my blog - here
The book sale pays my wage - so hoping we sell a few!!
Cheers, Ian

Hey Ian, I'm kind of new to this community and this Emergent stuff, but I see that you have a book coming out...is it about the emergent church? Anyway, I am interested to learn more about the book and your community in England. Cheers, Dan

Hey Ian, thanks for the comment about my music. I don't have a myspace music account, just a blog and a facebook page. If you have a facebook page then look me up and we can become "friends". Hope all is well across the pond. Peace, Dan

Ian - you're referenced this week here - they're asking for international responses. Thought it might be a great place to mention your book.

Christianity Today gave a good review of 'Rising from the Ashes: Rethinking Church" quotes you in the excerpt. http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2008/januaryweb-only/102-32.0.html

Thought you might want to know.
