I go to Rio . . . De Janeiro . . . next May, and not just coz my baby smiles at me (she does), but because i will be speaking and learning at Tribal Generation's yearly event, the event that i always get invited to, and yet never get there.
"New Generation or Urban Tribes is a global phenomenon where frontiers are not barriers, where the values are still being defined in a world called post modern. In EUA and Europe the phenomenon is called Emergent Generation and it is made of people that have their values and aims strongly influenced by a global world . . ."
That quote (as well as the images) is from the Brazilian TribalGeneration.org website, translated for English speakers like me. Olgavaro Bastos Jnr has been involved on a leadership level with many of our global emerging church events - we were together in Japan, Colombia, Texas, England, Portugal and Prague. The emerging scene there is huge, and is all over Latin America, but Brazil and Chile seem to be hubs. Much for us to learn from and a welcome mat to contribute what we can.
