The first Skypecast for Asian American Emergents is tonight! Less than 7 hours away at 10:00pm Eastern / 7:00pm Pacific. This is our introductory meeting for Asian American Christians and the Emergent Church Movement: dial-in via Skype. I hope my home DSL will stay live and connected. [update: we had a time sync glitch; dial-in to the backup skypecast if needed, or Skype me at djchuang for current info]
(Pastor of North Point) Andy Stanley showed up at a recent Emergent cohort in Atlanta. I still get click-thrus from the most popular pomomusings blog comment thread where Andy first showed up in the blogosphere. Maybe one day a megachurch pastor might show up on the occasionally-scheduled Asian American Emergents skypecast.
We pulled it off on the backup skypecast: David Park (Atlanta), Ben Pun (Houston), Peter Ong (Syracuse), and myself (metro DC) chatted for an hour. We had a round of introductions. Conversation mostly hovered around the intergenerational immigrant Asian church’s differing perspectives on authenticity. We didn’t delve into too much Emergent stuff.
All agreed it was an enjoyable time and we’ll do this in a month for whoever can make it, instead of waiting 3 months. Next skypecast will be Sunday, August 27th. Time TBD. Please join us!
