Forge intensive, 2009, @ Northern Church of Christ

Just a few thoughts...

*I didn't meet anyone from the pioneering stream. Once upon a time there was only the pioneering stream.
*Most of the people who I met were getting accredited from bible colleges or just decided to do a one off intensive.
*It would appear that most people are in mainstream churches, that some are exploring the idea of transitioning.
*It was good to hear Alan Hirsch speak. I have this nagging question. Is Alan still a pioneering practitioner. Or has he turned his hand at helping churches mainly large, in transitioning. I suspect the latter. 
*It was good to hang out with people who are exploring mission and missional theory to an Australian context.
*Christina spoke well on sustainability, lots of positive feedback.
