The People Here

Christ Church Deer ParkEmily Chatten

CCDP since:
About 2008

 
 


What attracted you to CCDP?

In a word? Music.

What keeps you here?

Without a doubt, the community.

What word or phrase best describes the community at CCDP?

More so than any church community I've ever encountered, I'd describe the CCDP community as engaged.

What do you think is the most compelling thing about Christianity?

Various theologians have written about the idea of Christ being remade in the image of man, or of Christ dying and being resurrected within the image of man. This image is very apt during Lent and Holy Week, however the idea that Christianity remakes itself through us, through our participation and spirituality, is very compelling.

What books would we find on your night table right now?

Books are my night table! There's Scandinavian fiction, historical fiction, theology, philosophy, ecology. Today I'm especially excited about Barbara Brown Taylor's "Learning To Walk in the Dark," an exploration of spirituality at nighttime.

What question do you wish we had asked but didn't?

I wish you'd asked me about intergenerational spirituality. Sometime ago, I was asked to look into the idea of what keeps children and youth engaged in church, as a particular concern of parents and grandparents. The researcher in me loves a problem and before long I was hooked. I've learned many interesting and exciting things, but I have some questions. One in particular that I'd like people to think about, and that is: "Why should we concern ourselves with the faith journeys of young adults - why does it matter?"
