A TOUCHING PLACE FOR THE EMERGING CHURCH | MARCH 04 : the 'down-under' issue!
 
 


[REFLECTION] 03.04
Are we there yet?
ANDREW HAMILSTON
Australia

"an overview of how the 'emerging church' has emerged so far...
Its been an interesting journey with some signficant shifts in thinking having happened very rapidly already.
"

[REFLECTION] 03.04
A to Z of emerging church
STEVE TAYLOR
NZ

"We seem reluctant to name the emerging church. Perhaps our naming yet lacks an alphabet. We need some A, B, Cís before we can spell the word."


And some recent stories from New Zealand and Australia you might have missed:

[STORY] 09.03
Working out an Australian Spirituality/Christianity
EDDIE CHAPMAN
Breathing Space : Melbourne, Australia

"
Breathing-space is a small group of people who meet as 'church' weekly in one of our homes. While continually evolving, words like "postmodern", "alternative", "missiological" & "experimental" could begin to describe us."

[STORY] 10.03
Having an open door : Missional Flatting
MARK GRACE
Massey, New Zealand

"
a community of students living in a flat who intentionally seek to live out and speak about the good news of Jesus Christ to those on their street"

[VIRTUAL CAFE INTERVIEW] 10.03
Becoming Deeper
PAUL FROMONT
SPACE : New Zealand

"
to learn, to discover, to blend ancient and pre-reformation practices of prayer, liturgy, ritual, poetry, image, sound..."

 


[STORY] 03.04
Emerging down under
ROSEMARY NEAVE
NZ

"While many congregations on Sunday mornings around New Zealand may be 'greying' and shrinking, as in other parts of the world there are a growing number of people and groups who are gathering in other ways and on other days to reflect on their faith journey and to celebrate it..."

This "emerging" thing is bugging me. Firstly, it seems that some people who identify with the term tend to think that their way of doing church relates purely to people who have a postmodern worldview...
