Faith in a Postmodern World with Dr. Peter Rollins

Faith in a Postmodern World with Dr. Peter Rollins.  The Anglican Diocese of Edmonton,  Taylor University College & Seminary, Urban Bridge Church (P.A.O.C.), and Interface Worship are partnering in bringing Peter Rollins to Edmonton for a series of events. As an author, public speaker, working philosopher, creator of theo-dramas, and founder of the experimental collective Ikon, Dr. Rollins is an innovative and important voice for emerging Christianity.

“Here in pregnant bud is the rose, the emerging new configuration, of a Christianity that is neither Roman nor Protestant, neither Eastern nor monastic; but rather is the re-formation of all of them. Here, in pregnant bud, is third-millennium Christendom.” —Phyllis Tickle, author of “The Divine Hours TM” series, and “The Great Emergence”, commenting on Rollin’s book, “How (Not) to Speak of God”

  1. […] beyond belief Filed under: church, events, resources — nick @ 10:18 am Tags: church, peter rollins, western world Irish philosopher, author, and pastor Pete Rollins is going to be in Edmonton 5-8 February for an (un)conference. What’s the best part about an (un)conference? The delight that semioticians take in an E. E. Cummings style parenthetical insertion? No! It’s that there’s no overhead, no registration, and no cost. If you’re in or around Edmonton, or have a good excuse to hang out that weekend, I’d suggest making it out to a few sessions. This is exactly the sort of conference that piques my interest. A chance to dialogue, interact, and be part of something. All the details are online here. […]
