You might be Emergent If . . .

Time for the end of the week links – scrap pieces of unrelated news and random links :

– Some Chinese house churches are being closed. Link

– Carmelite Nun who created dies. Link. HT

Ekklesia has some good links to articles on house churches,

– Racial issues – Rudy recommends reading PostmodernNegro’s post on deep ecclesiology.

Most intriguing thought of the week was from Jolly Blogger who started off something in his comments section that I am sure will get some milage – “You might be Emergent if . . .”

Here are a few of mine. You might be Emergent if . . .

– you apologize for your avatar or habbo character not turning up to Cyber Church on Sunday.

– you know the best way to scrape candle wax off carpet

– you have considered putting dreads in your gotee

– you have more metal in your face than on your hands

– you email your wife even though she is in the next room

– you write so much in hypertext that you think your name starts with “a href”

– you don’t remember how to send a letter through the post. [more]
