I was reading Two Blonde Boys and he had a post on the Emerging Church. I had heard this term before but have always been at a loss as to its meaning. I clicked onto a blog link that illustrated (they do not to appear to favor definitions;) the emerging church. I believe that this is all toungue and cheek. I discovered that I am to old, boring and overall not hip enough to be in this group. What really convinced me was the list of words that the movement view as negative:
Foundationalism, Absolute Truth, Church Growth, D.A. Carson, Calvinism, Modernism, Fundamentalist, Bush, Seeker Sensitive, Preaching, Pulpit, Doctrine, Innerancy, Power, Enlightenment, Rationalism, Meta-narratives, Universal, Judgemental
The only ones that don’t represent me and my beliefs are D.A. Carson(because I can’t place the name) and Seeker Sensitive(but I believe churches should be to a point;). Now I do have a laptop and I like the Dave Crowder Band but I definately don’t have a Christian/Liberal bumper sticker. I would like to know what group I actually fit into. I am interested in learning more about this movement and keeping up on what things are on the rise in the church but this has definately helped enlighten me;).
