I'm having such a great time with this group of baptist ministers/pastors/leaders.
Their willingness to think, and question, and commitment to resourcing their local churches, is a breath of fresh air and encouragement.
Receiving communion together was a highlight, having so much in common with people I have just met. It made me wonder again where in a secular society do people meet and have a shared understanding of life, that is as deep, rich and that opens us up to each other at the most profound levels of trust and sharing.
My keynote/slides that I am using are below. I've been talking (as asked to) on leading in our emerging culture, and then about spiritual formation, drawing on my work on consumerism as a religion.
