If adventure came knocking, would you have the courage to open the door? That was the question Susie had to answer. She was very comfortably established in her hometown routine, semiretired and serene. So it was with some misgivings that she agreed to take a tour around the perimeter of the United States with her husband, Bob. The conveyance? His new dream machine, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle with a sidecar added just for her. With no former riding experience and no little anxiety, she goes along for the ride. She learns a bit about the country, its people, and some very important things about herself. Come along for a virtual ride!

Author, historian and keen cultural observer Phyllis Tickle invites us to join her in examining the changing face of Christianity and culture. Phyllis surveys 2000 years of Western history, identifying the great upheavals that occur in Western culture and Christianity every 500 years. The last was the Great Reformation of the 1500's; the next is happening now. What are the implications of this "Great Emergence," both culturally and spiritually? What are the key questions and issues that need to be addressed? Where might we be headed next? And, perhaps most importantly, where are you, at this moment? Might you be an emergence Christian?
The six sessions are: 1) Emergence 101, 2) Where Now Is the Authority? 3) The 20th Century and Emergence, 4) Gifts from Other Times, 5) How Then Shall We Live? and 6) Hallmarks of Emergence
The Participant's Workbook contains all the material needed for use by class participants as well as notes for the class leader to facilitate each session; leadership can be shared among members of the group.
