This Saturday is a follow up on last week's show discussion The Emergent Church movement, specifically the Christianity21 conference, and New Communities of Faith with Guest speaker Danielle Shroyer (link to bio).
    Danielle is one of the 21 female speakers at the Christianity Conference held in Minneapolis two weeks ago. She is the pastor of Journey Church in Dallas, considered to be one of the new emergent communities of faith. Services or gatherings are held on Sunday evenings, and discussion vary to cover many topics such as letting the life of Jesus inspire us with joy and abundant life, rather than focusing only on his death on the cross, such as "Vampire Christians" who are only interested in Jesus for his blood.
    She asks the question on her blog, "Should church be Fun?" and has also held services that focus on peace-making, fair trade, feeding the poor, and going green.
    One of her influences theologically has been Jurgen Moltmann, a Twentieth Century Christian Theologian from Germany, the author of more than 25 books, whose work including "The Theology of Hope" revolutionized much Christian pastoral speakers and sparked a great deal of interest and discussion in Christian circles.
    Danielle is an author herself and her first book The Boundary-Breaking God: An Unfolding Story of Hope and Promise (Jossey-Bass, 2009) has just been released. She speaks often on issues of theology, church leadership and emerging communities of faith. Her father was a Southern Baptist and her mother was from a Muslim family from Lebanon. Danielle lives with her husband and two children in Dallas, Texas.
