First Emmaus Road Gathering

Monday night 25-30 of us crammed into the Scandrette home. We ate, met, discussed, connected, read Matthew 16 and prayed together. After dinner we split into 2 discussion groups. Some topics that seemed to be popping up throughout the night: a Kingdom theology, post-congregational community, living an integrated and holistic life and social justice. If you have a comment or question to follow up on the night, please post it here. We'll meet again February 20th in Oakland at the Burnett house.

I was very glad that Robin Mohr was present at our gathering. (You may remember her as the Quaker). Robin wrote down a couple of books for me she thought many of us would enjoy.
