What Sort of World? Trivial Expressions of the Transcendent ~ Randy Randall & Mary McCleary

You thought we had posted all the videos from the Tyler conference? Wrong again! Here’s Randy Randall’s enthralling (and highly relevant) on-stage discussion with renowned artist Mary McCleary. As you’ll see, audio alone wouldn’t have made much sense:

Three Quick Updates:

1. We have officially reached capacity for dining at the conference. If you have yet to pre-register but would like to eat, please purchase your tickets ASAP and send us an email at info@mbird.com to reserve a spot on the waiting list. We’ll do all we can to accommodate everyone and will let you know as soon as your plate(s) is guaranteed. Thanks for understanding!

Please note: this does not apply to members of Calvary St George’s.

Please also note: there’s still plenty of room for those who want to attend the sessions. Last-minute walk-ins are always welcome.

2. This is really cool: our friend Samantha Blythe has put together a beautiful fanzine about the recent Tyler Conference and has made it available on Etsy for folks to purchase. Half of the proceeds even benefit Mbird! Click here for more info or to order. Please note: this zine is a limited edition run of 150 copies, and the sale will run only through April 30.

3. Matt Magill and co put together a delightful little video about our time in Tyler, which you can check out below:

Viva La Resistance: Personal and Pastoral Resistance to Grace – Paul Zahl

Here is the last talk from our recent conference in Tyler, TX — and what a finale it is!

Sin Boldly? Really? – Mark Braaten

Next breakout from Tyler is here! This one arrives courtesy of our friend Pastor Mark Braaten of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church down there, who gives a terrific primer on the anniversary at hand. Apologies for the audio, which comes in and out a bit:

You Complete Me? Grace, Loneliness and the Religion of Romance – David Zahl

Carrying on with the videos from Tyler, here’s the first of the breakouts, courtesy of DZ:

How Low Can You Go? The Soul of the Gospel – Paul Zahl

The opening talk from Tyler is here! As as you’ll see, it was really something else:

Dear Reformation, It’s Not You It’s Me: Theology We Love to Hate – Sarah Condon

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.

Mbird Tyler 2017 (2/24-25): The Soul of the Gospel

1

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.

FEED YOUR SOUL AND REGISTER TODAY!

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.
