Tomorrow we'll be broadcasting live from Christianity21. Christianity21 is a conference that highlights progressive Christianity in the 21st Century.

 Christianity 21 Conference is taking place January 9-11, 2014 in Denver, Colorado. It was produced by emergent Christian leaders Tony Jones, Doug Pagitt, and Sarah Cunningham. This conference brings together 21 exciting and diverse voices of faith to share their big thoughts on the future of Christianity. Some of the speakers are Nadia Bolz-Weber, Phyllis Tickle, Paul Rauschenbush, Bruce Reyes-Chow, and Kent Dobson, to name a few. In addition, 42 speakers will get 7 minutes each to share whatever they want with the audience as part of the event’s goal of giving everyone a moment in the spotlight.

“This is a non-ideological conference,” says Jones.”This is not a liberal or evangelical conference. We try to have a lot of diversity in the voices. We pick the most awesome 21 people we can find and tell them they have 21 minutes to tell us their one big idea that Christianity needs to be about in the 21st Century. That’s it. We don’t vet their talks. Then they come in and do their best to blow the doors off. And then what’s amazing is how their ideas weave together to present a mosaic for the future of Christianity.” 

Many of these great speakers have been featured quests on the Cosmic Citizen before. We'll be spontaneously asking some of these brave souls to share their thoughts and ideas with us. It has been a great conference so far. We hope you tune in.
