Luctor Et Emergo

From Paul at Panda’s Ponderings, Netherlands . .

Luctoretemergo“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… ”


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • 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…
