One Response to Fall Membership Drive

  1. Devin,

    As you may guess I’m “up” for all of it! I’ve checked off the first two items.

    Would you have interest in pictures from the Christian Scholar Series at Elizabethtown Brethren in Christ, http://www.etownbic.org/christianscholar? How about a report on some of the speakers hosted by Elizabethtown College’s Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies, http://www.etown.edu/YoungCenter.aspx?topic=Events.*

    I can write a “three books post” by year end. Please pass along a deadline. I’ll encourage some others to contribute 😉

    In Christ, Tom

    *Note: Last night I heard Katherine Carté Engel present on “German Pietists in a British Atlantic World.” Lord willing, I’ll hear Donald Kraybill share “Amish Spirituality: Patient Faith in a Perilous World” (November 16). I could combine an “event report” with a “book review” (or do a 2 part post) as I have Engle’s and Kraybill’s new books on my “to read shelf.” Would love to have others from the Brethren in Christ informed about/participating in some of these stimulating lectures.

    BTW, I had opportunity to chat with Katherine for an extended time. We discussed “God in America,” why many radical communities fade after the first generation (e.g., Christian Colleges, Ephrata Cloister, Moravians), and my family’s Moravian roots. I’d recommend you make a connection with her. I think that you’d find her insights/research of great interest.
