KERRY THORPE
HARVEST : Kent : UK


"Reading Ian Mobsby's piece on Theology for the Emerging Church (10.05) struck a chord. It made me think back over what we've been learning here at HARVEST new Anglican church. We've been doing emerging theology without realising it..."

Adrian continues the theme explored in several stories on the site - is the emerging church going to help the Church rediscover its passion for the oppressed and ignored in society?

...Church 2.0 ...a missional ecclesiastic response to a culture influenced by the values of Web 2.0...
