New Worship Community in Nashville

Sorry the blog has been so dead recently. I just want to share this and hear any feedback or suggestions that you might have.

For several months now, my pastor at West Nashville UMC and I have kicked around the idea of beginning a new worship service at the church. From the first moment, I have felt powerfully called to participate in this service. Over time, we began to realize that even more than just adding another service time, what we were really shooting for was the formation of a community of believers who would help us incarnate Christ into our surrounding community.

To begin this community, I hope to gather several of my friends from Vanderbilt Divinity School, as well as any of you in the NAshville area who wish to participate. I want to gather and begin to think through what it means to be a Eucharistic community. To begin, I want to ask the question, what kind of church/community/people are we called to be if we return to the very foundation of our faith, the Eucharist? How would our lives corporately and individually look if we wrestle seriously with what it means to receive the Lord's body and blood, and in doing so become transformed into part of that body ourselves?

I would be interested in hearing any of your thoughts. Our first meeting will be January 23rd at West Nashville UMC (47th and Charlotte), 6-8 PM.

A couple of new Interventions book covers

It's been a while since we've posted on this blog, but I thought I'd at the very least share some further developments in the Interventions book series, edited by Conor Cunningham and Peter Candler. I neglected to mention in my previous post, but I actually put most of these covers together, and had quite a bit of fun doing it.

The main update, for now, is that while the von Balthasar cover is going through some revisions, a couple of other book covers have been posted to the site. One is in the 'Critical Introductions' part of the series on Heidegger by Sean McGrath, and the other is on Justice by Daniel M. Bell.

Also, look for another book series through the CoTP called Veritas which will definitely have some sweet cover art as well. I'm definitely looking forward to these books actually being published! (And it looks like this person is, too!)
