From Paul at Panda’s Ponderings, Netherlands . .
“LUCTOR ET EMERGO is the motto from the Dutch province of Zeeland, meaning ‘I wrestle and emerge’. I think this credo is also very appropriate for the emerging church worldwide. Sometimes it feels like the church is struggling to survive and (almost) drowning in a sea of secular culture. Maybe we have to re-think church . . ..
Sssssshh…. can you hear the Lord’s still small voice?
I never expected him to sing THIS song!
The tide is high but I’m holding on
I’m gonna be your number One… ”
Too perfect! Reading that, I saw the persevering Bride striding across the tumultuous water towards her Groom, singing back, “I’m not the kind of girl who gives up just like that — oh noooo-o-o-o!”
Hee hee, 80s kids. Love it. Hey, if hymns can be made from bar tunes…
Great post. I think that is a great slogan for the emgering church.
