Congrats for a great idea and even better execution! Hopefully this will be a springboard for honest and thoughtful, sometimes difficult, conversations that bring more light than heat! I think a goal of 'proactive' or 'generatively constructive' is the way for emergent and denominational churches to go in all things. Toward that end, I'll share and ask for prayers and suggestions for a sliver of an project just in the very beginning conversation stage. I live just north of Duke University and Raleigh Durham. There is a group of emergent folks cohorting here already but the diversity issue there, as elsewhere in most emergent forums, is 'challenging' for some of us. Likewise, and probably more problemmatic, national news have highlighted Duke and the surrounding community's diversity/inclusiveness/tolerance issues to the light of day. We are just beginning conversations about a three-fold event (for lack of a better word) to name and address the diversity and tolerance issues of all three: emergent, Duke (the seminary mostly), and the community. The one (male) leader of emergent I've emailed has yet to respond, but we will be hopeful and hospitable in his behalf. Love to hear thoughts and impressions. And again, good job, Julie!
