A TOUCHING PLACE FOR THE EMERGING CHURCH | DECEMBER 03
 
 

[INTERVIEW] 11.03
The underbelly of 'cutting-edge' church
SALLY MORGENTHALER
Denver, USA

"Helping the Church name its reality is one of my passions, because, in my view, if we aren't starting with how things really are, we have no hope of changing to where God is calling us to be. "

[STORY] 11.03
Thermometer Theology
GEOFF REID
Bradford, UK

"

RICHARD SUDWORTH

"Emerging Churches in Post-Christendon"
STUART MURRAY-WILLIAMS
UK

"What kind of church can participate effectively in God's mission and incarnate the good news in the emerging culture of post-Christendom, where the church is on the margins rather than in the centre? "

Doughnut Churches - a stupid way to be church or a sign of growth?
SIMON HALL
Leeds, UK

"What happens when you try to build a Christian community (“plant a church” is sooo 80s) that is made up of people who found themselves on the fringes of their former churches?"

...It strikes me that he problem with 'tradition' is not that something is repeated but when that something has lost its meaning. It is the loss of meaning that brings death, is lifeless etc...
