Finding Favor by Brian Jones, Free for CAPC Members
Jones helps us think rightly about the intersection of faith and blessing, setting straight some of the tainted notions we have picked up from the world at large.
We’re happy to officially announce Christ and Pop Culture LIVE: With Real People, In a Real Space, With a Real Audience (We Hope), a descriptively titled late-night panel that will take place at The Gospel Coalition 2015 National Conference. By the way, you can save $30 on your registration to the TGC National Conference by using “CAPC15” as a coupon code. We have that kind of pull.
If you’re a fan of what we do, you simply have to come, because we are afraid no one else will be there. But show up early because this thing is going to be off the hook and we’re sure the room will fill up probably. We’ll have all your favorite people: Richard Clark (that’s me), Alan Noble, Derek Rishmawy, Mike Cosper! Will there be other special guests? Maybe! You never know (we don’t know yet either)!
By the way, you recognize that name, Mike Cosper right? He’s kind of a big deal. I mean, sure, Richard Clark is me, CAPC’s editor-in-chief. Alan Noble is our managing editor and writer for the likes of The Atlantic. And Derek Rishmawy is the Reformedish superstar, everyone’s favorite everyday theologian. But Mike Cosper is the pastor of worship and arts at Sojourn Community Church, has written some books, and has done a bunch of other amazing stuff in the arts and culture area, so he’s basically the guy you should be coming to see. We feel confident he will say some really smart and intriguing things even though it’s not in his contract or anything. Also, he wrote a fantastic book called The Stories We Tell.
You can expect a light-hearted discussion about popular culture, our role in it, and the church’s role in engaging, discerning, and consuming culture. That’s what you’ll get out of it. As for us, we’ll get a chance to see your beautiful faces, which will be pretty awesome.
Here’s the info so you can go ahead and start turning down invites to exclusive parties by saying, “Nah, I would love to but I have to go to Christ and Pop Culture LIVE: With Real People, In a Real Space, With a Real Audience (We Hope) and by the way, you should cancel that party and tag along”:
When: Tuesday, April 14th – 9:30pm
Room: Wekiwa 6-8 (level 2, right at the top of the escalators)
By the way this thing is free. All you have to do is walk into the room. That’s the cost. I mean, you have to register for the conference, but at $30 off (coupon code: CAPC15) that’s a steal!
See you there!
