I'm off today to beautiful Calgary, Canada. I will be in Alberta for about a week as I am serving as the guest speaker for the Theologue 2011 at Gardner Bible College in Camrose, Alberta and visiting a church and some friends in Edmonton. I will be giving 10 sessions based on my third book Mosaic on May 10-12th.
The three main areas to be covered are:
The Church of God in Crisis :
The Quest for Health and Purpose:
Is the Church of God Relevant in the 21st Century?
Quite a bit of time will be focused on explaining the Three Worlds of Christianity as well as systematic organizational problems in the Church of God and how districts, churches, and regions can remedy those issues. Sounds boring doesn't it? But it won't be, because ultimately, it will be about how the global landscape for Christianity is changing very rapidly. It will be very relevant for the students at the college, and the administrators and pastors that attend. I don't want to put anyone to sleep.
I'm looking forward to seeing Alberta. I've never been to this part of Canada. I'm completely in love with Vancouver, BC, and have a special fondness for Prince Edward Island (East Coast) and Toronto. But I've never had the chance to see the Canadian Rockies and plains.
More pictures of Italy coming up.
