Dear Friends of Emergent Village,
It’s been an amazing year. For me, it was the 10th anniversary of my first book being published, and the 10th anniversary of my discovering the community and conversation now known as Emergent Village. It’s hard to believe how much has happened in just 10 years.
This is the year that Phyllis Tickle’s book The Great Emergence was released, and many of us feel that this book is helping us understand in a greater way what’s been happening in and among us over this decade, what we’re participating in, what’s trying to be born.
And this is the year that thousands of us participated in an online survey that gave us the chance to express what Emergent Village means to us, along with our hopes and concerns and needs.
