Mark Scandrette is coming to town…

mark scandretteI am really pleased that we have managed to find a way to coincide with Mark Scandrette being in the UK so that he can come and hang out in Oxford and share some of his wisdom. I have known Mark for years and loved what he has been up to in mission in San Fransisco, his writing and the creativity and imagination and challenge he brings to pretty much everything he does. I first connected with him in the early years of discussing emerging church and all that when there was quite a bit of sharing ideas between the UK and US in that adventure.

Anyway all that to say we have a day in January here in Oxford – January 9th – called Live Free – where Mark will lead a workshop day exploring mission in very practical ways such as how do can you deal with your money and time in such a way as to be free to do what God has called you to. I think/hope it will be a blend of his thinking in the two books Free and Practicing The Way of Jesus – both of which are really good. It’s a treat not to miss and is open to anyone to book in. And for those of you who are studying with us you are in the starfish network so make sure you select the discounted starfish ticket option.

Details about the event and ticket booking is here.

I took this photo of Mark in 2009 which may be the last time I saw him! I rather like it though it apparently caused some interesting spin offs in the US!!
