e-merg :: podcast :: 04 :: Karen Ward

Karen Ward from Seattle talks about the Church of the Apostles, a joint Lutheran-Episcopelian venture in the Fremont neighbourhood. They are renovating a former church building into an arts center. Karen explains that the essence of the emerging church is a theological question about how best to represent Jesus within their zip code.
While there probably is no such thing as a typical COTA service, Karen describes a goth mass there. She relates her journey from Lutheran denominational official to emerging church planter.
Church of the Apostles will participate in a New Monasticism Learning Party on April 27, as part of the Church Has Left the Building conference.
