NOTE: There are two events happening at Sojo, September 24th. The first is a Leadership Seminar. Tickets cost $99 (there are group discounts). It takes place from 1-4:30 in the afternoon. The second is a reading. It is free and begins at 7:30 p.m. When you receive your confirmation, scroll to the bottom where it says, "Ticket Type." The ticket you ordered will be listed there. The top of the confirmation will have the afternoon time as the default, but if your ticket says, "Evening Presentation, 7:30 p.m.: The Great Spiritual Migration," you are signed up for the evening event.
The Christian story, from Genesis until now, is fundamentally about people on the move—outgrowing old, broken religious systems and embracing new, more redemptive ways of life. It’s time to move again. In his new book, The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World's Largest Religion is Seeking a Better Way to be Christian, Brian McLaren invites you to seize the moment and set out on the most significant spiritual pilgrimage of our time: to help Christianity become more Christian.
Join us for “An Afternoon with Brian McLaren,” a leadership-oriented gathering for clergy and lay leaders hosted by Sojourn Grace Collective. This gathering will run from 1:00-4:30 p.m. and requires a ticket. Cost information below.
Then at 7:30 p.m., join Sojourn Grace for Brian's reading from his new book, The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World’s Largest Religion Is Seeking a Better Way to Be Christian. There is no cost for the reading. Brian will be availabe to sign copies of his book, which you can purchase at the event.
Who Should Attend: If you’re a long-time fan of Brian’s work, this will be an ideal opportunity to hear his latest thinking. If you’re unfamiliar with his work, this will be an excellent introduction. The afternoon is geared toward Christian pastors and lay leaders, but faith leaders from other traditions will also find the afternoon relevant, practically helpful, and inspiring.
Cost: The $99 cost for the afternoon event includes a free copy of Brian’s newest book for the first 24 registrants in each city ($15.75 value). Participants will also receive the following:
Free downloads of exciting new music for your congregation from the Convergence Music Project.
A free download of Brian’s Through-the-Bible podcast (a $25 value) and audio Bible Overview series (a $100 value).
Access to other free and discounted resources.
