Reflections on the Emerging Church Learning Party

Conversation, questions, worship, Eucharist, and voices emerging from people on the street – The day was filled with conversation, questions, emerging worship, music and the stories of how an emerging church in Seattle came to be and how it functions in its context: as a friend to the world, as the light of Christ in the world, as a listening, ministering, ancient-future community of the living Jesus in the world.

U2charist in downtown Scranton

U2charist offers spirituality with contemporary twist... at Test Pattern in downtown Scranton on Oct. 28 at 8 p.m. at the gallery, 334 Adams Ave.

A growing trend among some Protestant denominations, a U2charist blends contemporary music and culture with Christian worship. Incorporating traditional liturgical elements primarily from the Episcopal Church, the service will be marked by songs by the acclaimed band in place of traditional hymns. Coordinating the event is Peacemeal, a group of about 15 area residents who identify themselves with the “emerging church,” a grass-roots network of progressive evangelicals who are advocating for new modes of worship and daily living as Christians.
