EmergentKiwi Steve Taylor invites emerging churches (of the non-USA variety – which BTW are the majority) to send an image of their community. He will be posting them in Jan 06.

“This Christmas I am collecting a series of postcards from the edge. To qualify I am inviting you to email me;

a) 1 photo of your emerging community this year; plus a paragraph answer to these 4 questions;

b) how were you as an emerging community birthed?;

c) what do you as an emerging community value?;

d) what music track sums up your year;

e) what was your best mission moment in 05?

Oh, I nearly forgot. I will only be posting postcards from emerging churches outside the US. I’m tired of the UScentrism of the emerging church blog world. Postcards05 is not for Americans. It’s a blog-stake in the ground; a visual reminder that God is active outside the bounds of America.”

Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
