Introducing Proximity Space Blog

20 March, 2004 3:10 PM

I've been meaning to introduce Kevin from Proximity Space for a few days now, but in the busyness of life I keep forgetting to when I'm online. I spent a morning with Kevin this past week as he came down to Melbourne here for a bit of a break.

Kevin is an American based in Sydney who is part of an exciting Emerging Church project in a Cafe. I won't mention which cafe because I think he likes to keep some anonymity between his blog and it (tell me if its otherwise Kevin and I'll add the details).

I've heard about the cafe through a number of people and it sounds like an exciting space which is fostering opportunities for community building, mission and personal spiritual growth. It sounds right up my alley!

His blog is Proximity Space and it is his attempt to 'create a space for leaders and participants in the Emerging Missional Church to engage and critique some of the thoughts and things that I think I am learning through creating a proximity space in the marketplace in the form of a cafe.'

Please stop by and say hi, introduce yourself, encourage Kevin and his team (its full on work that they do which can leave one feeling pretty 'spent') and interact with the things that he's writing about and learning. Don't be discouraged by the lack of recent updates on his blog, he promises to post entries more often in future! Kevin desires his blog to be an interactive space of learning for himself and others. I highly commend the work he's doing to you - he's got some great stuff to say!

Also I'd like to mention Synapse Chronicles which is run by Kevin's mate Grant who is also linked to the same faith community/cafe that Kevin runs. Grant's blog is a fascinating read on a variety of topics including politics, books, social justice issues etc - highly recommended stuff!



Hey Darren, thanks for the promo and kind words. I really benefited from our time together and have finally started processing my Melbourne related thoughts. You will be featuring soon. Thanks for the anonymity about the cafe, need to keep those pesky churchies away as much as possible. Peace and Caffeine kev
