My dear friend Richard invited me to a small group retreat called “Envision” at a ranch in the Northern Coastal Range with an incredible gathering of scholars from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds. It was a great honor. I am really not sure how much I added to the dialogue but I know that I was honored to just sit near and under such thoughtful followers of the Jesus-Way like Randy Woodley, Soong-Chan Rah, Andrea Smith, Richard Twiss, Lisa Sharon Harper and Terry LeBlanc (to name a few).
One of the “take-aways” from that time was being introduced to a new website called “EHTNIC SPACE” http://ethnicspace.wordpress.com/. If you have a chance please check it out.
One of the first entries is titled, “When Going to Church is Sin”.
