One of the advantages of being connected with Mars Hill Graduate School is the various events and opportunities that come along. One such opportunity is Brian McLaren’s Deep Shift tour in connection with his latest book, Everything Must Change.  Brian and friends will be stopping in a number of cities about the U.S. and will be in Seattle on April 11-12, 2008.

  • Brian McLaren
  • Mark Yaconelli
  • Shane Claiborne
  • Kara Powell
  • Dan Kimball
  • Scot McKnight

hear·listen·connect – seattle

Off-the-Map (Jim Henderson & crew) are hosting Hear·Listen·Connect in Seattle Nov. 1-3, 2007.  Among others the conversation partners include: Diana Butler Bass, Brian McLaren, Richard Twiss, Ruth Padilla DeBorst, and Todd Hunter. 

What would happen if we practiced dialog instead of debate?

What if we defended relational space as passionately as we protect our beliefs?

At Hear·Listen·Connect it’s OK to be honest, share your own questions/concerns and have genuine relationship with people who are different than you.

Here are some questions we will explore together at Hear·Listen·Connect:

Where’s the line between acceptance and endorsement and does that even matter?

Is it possible to have an agenda-free relationship and if so, is that OK?

How do you have conversations with people whose viewpoints disturb you?

What do you do when “they” move into your cultural space or you enter theirs?

Peace, dwight

Lot’s of great people are involved, and I am strongly encouraging the people in my faith community participate in the event.
