Emergent Village New Site

Ev Banner1

Nice looking site for emergentvillage.com, which reminds me a little of Willzhead blog. But unfortunately i have been EXCOMMUNICATED from the listing of Emergent leaders.

The old site had me proudly on the team of Senior Fellows, with a link, a Bio, and lots of impressive scholastic achievements. But the new site apparently doesn’t know where to place me – I am not living in America anymore, as I was when i HELPED TO FORM Emergent and its earlier incarnations. And i am not really assigned to a particular country since i wander too much.

Thus, I am no longer on the site. Either that, or the fact that a few days ago i said that emergent is just one of the emerging church networks in USA, not the sum of them.

However, I will not take this personally. I still LOVE all those people. Even if they don’t love me . . . . {sob) But I will not think on it at all. Not at all. Right . . . . pull myself together. . . . , get off the floor, change my hanky, and get on with the day.

UPDATE: Good news

  • Ah, the thrill of victory (inclusion as a senior fellow, nice pic and bio) and the agony of defeat (noninclusion from the updated web site). Maybe senior fellows don’t fit into the lovely bubble-like diagram describing the non-structure of the non-movement? 🙂 I can’t help but smile. Don’t weep too long, I am sure you will be restored to your rightful “super-friend” (remember David Hopkin’s article?) status….In the meantime I guess you’ll have to de-emerge? This is a new word that I am trying out…It has a kind of turtle in the shell connotation, doesn’t it….

  • Pomergent. It’s a slippery combination of postmodern and emergent.
    Or is it a slippery shorthand for “post-emergent”?
    Welcome to the ranks of the anonymous! 🙂
