Webinars with Bob Johansen & Sean Steele

Our US partners TryTank have two great webinars coming up which we wish to promote as part of 'Living God's Future Now'. They are both about the new world into which the current pandemic will lead us. So, do register to be part of these future oriented discussions:

During COVID-19, some may be let back into church buildings gradually. What does this mean for the community that gathers? How can we still be one body when we are in many dispersed parts? The Rev. Sean Steele knows a little about being a united, although dispersed, community. His church plant, St. Isidore in Spring TX, is a BCP, liturgical community made up of 8 small missional communities. Come hear about what he has learned from launching 12 different missional communities. His presentation will be followed by a Q&A period where your specific questions will be addressed. Like TryTank, St Isidore is part of the HeartEdge movement. 


Faith in the future - Friday, June 19, 2020, 3:00 p.m. ET (8.00 p.m. BST)

What is the church of the future? Will church—as we know it—even exist? Author and noted futurist Bob Johansen, a distinguished fellow with the Institute for the Future, will join Dr. Lisa Kimball, the Associate Dean of Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary to look at current trends, beyond those trends, possible disruptions, and why a new way of thinking is required for leaders of the church. Rather than a fearful future, we should embrace it as an opportunity for new spectrums of meaning-making. It’ll be a fascinating, yet practical, conversation where your questions will also be considered.
