It’s a new year, and in accordance with the season, we’d like to try something new. I say “we” not because I suffer from multiple personalities or have excessively played Nintendo’s latest offering, but because this little venture was not my idea but came with the help of a few others (DJ, Sivin, Ben, Bruce, and Peter). By dropping the “Emergent” aspect of the Skypecasts, which was perceived with a great deal of apprehension anyway, we’ll be able to engage broader questions facing the next generation of Asian American churches. You can refer to past Skypecasts on DJ’s blog here.
So save the date, January 21st – 9:00pm (Eastern) / 6:00pm (Pacific).
The above link will take you to the Skypecast. If you’re still wondering what a Skypecast is, click here to find out how to listen in and take advantage of the toll-free, Internet-based conference call.
This month’s hour-long Skypecast coincides with the introduction DJ’s wiki of Asian American church plants as we delve into three different perspectives of the validity of an Asian American church.
Is the Asian American church — necessary, optional, or simply an unhealthy diversion?
The format for the Skypecast will be as follows:
- Brief Introduction (5 min)
- Asian American Church as Necessary (12 min) – Presenter 1
- Asian American Church as Optional (12 min) – Presenter 2
- Asian American Church as Unhealthy Diversion (12 min) – Presenter3
- Time for Discussion – Open to floor (20 min)
If you’re wondering who the “presenter” for each perspective will be, here’s where you get a chance to participate. While I will be on the prowl to fill these spots, if you find that a particular perspective to be your personal shtick (and you aren’t prone to fits of hyperventilating should you be asked a challenging question about it) send me an email at dpark75[at]gmail.com, and I’ll see what I can do to make sure you get a chance to make your case. I will update this post as spots are filled, so be sure to tune in over the next couple of weeks.
As Skypecasts can support up to 100 people participating, be sure to spread the word and log in! Look forward to seeing you there~
