Tony Jones at the Tattered Cover in Denver last night. Tony was in town for the Emerging Church for the Existing Church event. He discussed his new book, The New Christians, and had help with a dramatic reading from Mark Scandrette and Doug Pagitt. Afterward many of us went across the street to hang out for conversation.

Visited with Lilly Lewin who has been a favorite of mine from blogland. Lilly creates worship/prayer experiences for churches, retreats, etc. She was also speaking at the emerging/existing conference. I got to hear about the worship time, "you're invited to the table", that she helped curate the night before. It was based on scriptures about Jesus and conversations around the table with his followers at various times. Sounded very interesting with video, some teaching, lectio divina, live drama, and stations to engage with.

I also enjoyed a conversation with Anthony, from Ottowa, who is about to facilitate a group in Seattle, doing some teaching for their leadership and members. He will be challenging them on the subject of racial reconciliation. He said some things which I really want to think about relating to church/emergent church/African-American tradition and church experience.

p.s. coming up--my civil rights tour will continue through GA and AL
