Carrying on with the videos from Tyler, here’s the first of the breakouts, courtesy of DZ:
The opening talk from Tyler is here! As as you’ll see, it was really something else:
The first video from Tyler is here! And as you’ll see, the footage fills in a number of blanks from the recording, so if you’ve yet to listen to the audio, definitely start here. The good Rev. Condon brought the house down – truly one for the ages (and an immediate addition to the “I’m New Here” page). Asshats not included sadly:
P.S. We’ll have PZ’s opening talk soon – the separate venue made for a slight delay.
A Texas-sized thank you to everyone who helped put on our conference in Tyler last month, especially the fabulous–and ridiculously ecumenical–steering committee, led by the indefatigable Matt Magill. Huge thanks to all the sponsors as well: B3 Ministries, Bethel Bible, Christ Episcopal, Redeemer Pres Tyler, ETX Brewing Co, Porch Culture Coffee Roasters, Sola Bread Co, The Kalos Foundation, Center for Creative Media, The Foundry Coffee Shop, and True Vine Brewery, not to mention Mark Babikow, who once again came to our rescue on the A/V front. Vielen dank to Casey and Travis Squyres at Stellate…
With (magnificent!) Tyler behind us, it’s time to go full steam on the promotion for our big 10th Anniversary Conference in NYC which takes place the end of next month, April 27-29th. First up is our new video, which we encourage you to share to the ends of the Earth #markbabikowisourhero:
While we’re on the topic, the schedule is being released in bits and pieces (sorry!), with the main presentations pretty much set in stone over on the conference site. Breakouts will be announced next week. And menus right after that.
Last but not least, thanks to the generosity of several patrons/sponsors, there are
12 10 7 5 2 complimentary registrations to the conference available! If you’re interested, send us an email with the how’s and why’s at email@example.com as soon as possible. There’s a small budget to help with accommodation & travel cost as well.
Here is the grand finale video/talk from our recent Mockingbird event in Dallas, “Grace on the Big Screen.” Enjoy!
Talk number three from our “Grace on the Big Screen” event in Dallas is here! Click here to watch the first part (tho’ both stand alone).
We’re just over a week out from Tyler! Our man Mark Babikow put together a second little promo for it, which you can watch below.
Also, I don’t think we ever formally announced our talk titles, so here you go:
- “How Low Can You Go? The Soul of The Gospel?” – Paul Zahl, Friday PM
- “Dear Reformation, It’s Not You, It’s Me: Theology We Love to Hate” – Sarah Condon, Sat AM
- “You Complete Me? Grace, Loneliness and the Religion of Romance” – David Zahl, Sat AM
- “Viva La Resistance: Personal and Pastoral Resistance to Grace” – Paul Zahl, Sat PM
Those are just the tip of the iceberg, too. Click here for the full schedule. For those who arrive early, Sarah, Scott and DZ are doing a live recording of The Mockingcast on Friday afternoon (4pm). And let’s not forget about Stanley’s BBQ…! Or this incredible lady, who performs on Friday night:
Stencils not included, sadly (#mattmagillismyhero):
Come join us next month (2/24-25) for our third annual event in downtown Tyler, TX! Our theme this year will be “The Soul of The Gospel”. Paul Zahl and Sarah Condon, along with a host of others, will guide us as we explore the question, “what remains when cultural attachments are relinquished or extinguished and religious traditions have run their course, what is the meaning of the life, death and resurrection of The Son of God?”
None other than Liz Vice will serve as our guest artist with a Friday night concert and Saturday morning worship.
P.S. Lonestar state double-whammy: Grace on the Big Screen event happens in Dallas next weekend (1/13-14)! Click here to view the schedule.
Alrighty, just under the wire, here’s DZ’s closing presentation from the OKC Conference (10/28-29):
