I'm back from Christmas break and was wondering if we could meet for coffee sometime soon to talk about Common Table and a project I'm working on. It wouldn't let me send you a message, so why don't you send me an email and I can give you my phone number so we can get in touch more easily. email@example.com
I am headed to Holy Comforter next year as your seminarian. I need to come visit Common Table soon. I'd love to talk sometime about both communities. I'm particularly interested in the possibilities of starting an emergent community in my home diocese when I return.
I was given your name as someone who might have some specific insight into my thesis topic. Please find some initial conversation here: http://anglimergent.ning.com/forum/topics/research-for-mdiv-thesis
I am looking at use of Anglican Liturgical resources within the emergent community. Though they may use these resources a la carte, I am looking at what it is about these resources that attracts them. Some has suggested that it is the connection to tradition and history. Others suggest that it is the awareness of beauty in the liturgy. I, however, find this phenomenon to be curious when we tend to treat the liturgy like cryptonite when it comes to "youth" and "young adult" ministries.
My basic thesis is that the resonance has something to do with intentional community and early forms and monastic forms of worship.
PS- I notice that you are nearby, maybe we can get together and discuss this over coffee.
