Ok, so no one has asked these questions yet. But I think the answers might be helpful anyway. A number of people have expressed interest in being a part of this project, but very few have taken the plunge, so I want to make this as simple as possible.
What is the blog for?
The blog is the place to get involved in the discussion of how/if/should this centered set thing really matter. Everyone is invited to comment, but if you feel particularly drawn to this discussion, let me know in the comments, and I’ll make you a contributor to the blog.
What are those other sites for?
In the centered set church, community isn’t defined by who’s in or who’s out, or membership, or any other boundaries. And while people certainly gather, the community isn’t defined by events that everyone is invited or expected to come to. Rather, we’re exploring how the church forms where life happens. There are three tools we are using to help explore community:
We can use this service to tell our friends and our friend-of-a-friends when we’re out at an event. This is a more spontaneous way to connect. All you have to do is sign up and search for dydimustk, then check in when you’re out-and-about.
This allows us to let each other know when something is coming up (hence upcoming) that is a little more organized and intentional. Once you signup with upcoming.org, you just want to join the centeresetchurch group, then when you add events to the group, every one who is a member of the group will be able to see it.
do you have a question?
What if I have a question that you haven’t made up and answered?
Let me know if the comments below, and we’ll try to figure it out together.
