Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence, will lecture at Chatham Hall on Thursday, February 18th.
The following events are open to the public:
4:30-5:30 p.m. - round table Q&A (open to public) (Van Voorhis lecture hall)
5:30 -6:15 - Dinner (Open to Public) (lecture hall)
6:30-7:30 - address (open to public) (lecture hall)
Rooted in the observation that massive transitions in the church happen about every 500 years, Tickle shows readers that we live in such a time right now. She compares the Great Emergence to other “Greats” in the history of Christianity, including the Great Transformation (when God walked among us), the time of Gregory the Great, the Great Schism, and the Great Reformation.
Combining history, a look at the causes of social upheaval, and current events, The Great Emergence shows readers what the Great Emergence in church and culture is, how it came to be, and where it is going.
