Another conservative evangelical discussion about Emerging/Emergent--this time Moody Open Line [mp3].
I wish they--actually "we," being a conservative evangelical myself--would talk to more people, read more blogs and books, and consider our words more carefully before putting them out there in the public in books and on the air. I would say more, but I'm not sure I could follow my own advice. This discussion deserves another listen or two, but I have no time right now, but I do have two questions:
- The differentiation between "emerging" and "emergent" (emerging is more radical--did I get that right?) is new to me. Is this really out there? If so, how have I missed it?
- How is it possible that thinking people--and the detractors are thinking people--can continue to paint such a diverse movement (sorry:-) with such a broad brush? Yes, there are commonalities (this is how we know there is such a thing as Emerging/Emergent), but the range of theology and practice is rather astounding. To probably misquote Shakespeare, me thinks the lady doth protest too much.
