Emerging Church a Pathetic Enemy

Jordon Cooper gives wise perspective from somewhere near the North Pole, Canda.

“If we really are the enemy, we really are a pathetic enemy. . . ”

“Where is this threat that people are talking about? A really nice pastor from Maryland and a bunch of church planters who haven’t figured out how to pay basic bills. . . ”

“This isn’t a discussion about leadership styles, worship forms, or what kind of candles to have. It isn’t about an add on to exsisting ministries as a program (why are all college and career pastors now called, “Pastor to Emerging Generations” or something lame like that?) but rather an attempt to bring the Gospel to a people group that will never come back to church as previous generations have.”
