From David Robertson
For me, joining the Emergent Village conversation has been a process of small steps over months and years. But I really felt a leap forward one day earlier this year, when I listened to the voices of Tony Jones and Miroslav Volf on my iPod. Even though I’d read about the Emergent Theological gathering, there was something entirely different, and more intimate, about actually hearing the voices. It brought a human warmth to a theological discussion. Since hearing that first podcast, I’ve been hooked on a weekly dose of Emergent Village in my ears.
I’m happy to report that after a two-month break, the Emergent Village Podcast is returning. This Saturday, July 1st, we’ll be re-launching the podcast, with a conversation between Tony Jones and Doug Pagitt. It’s about 30 minutes long, and if you are at all interested in where the Emergent Village conversation seems to be going, it’s well worth a listen. In the weeks to come, the podcast will be filled with the voices of Karen Ward, Dwight Friesen, and Tim Keel. Each of them offers their own perspective on the Emergent Village, the church, and what it looks like to follow Jesus. We’ll be releasing a new podcast approximately every week, on Friday night.

In addition to featuring people talking on the Emergent Village Podcast, we also want to play music from the Emergent Village participants. If you know of music or musicians that you think might contribute to the conversation, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can send us MP3 files, or just the contact information for a musician and/or band. We’ll follow up from there.
I believe the Emergent Village Podcast can be another voice in the conversation among friends. Please give it a listen and, if you have ideas for people who could be on the podcast, or suggestions on how to make it better, please send them to email@example.com. Here’s hoping your ears will be blessed.
