How to speak about the Emerging Church without sounding like a moron

Next-Wave deserve a special mention for November’s incredible array of articles on the emerging church. Sorry for coming late to the party. Very rude of me, especially since they have run my tallskinnykiwi widget to raise funds for next year. THANKS! Charlie’s cover story on What Pastors should think about the Emerging Church was a smash hit but there were also other worthy pieces. One of them involves Becky Garrison talking behind my back, as well as many of my English friends, in A Mixed Economy of Church in a Post-Christian Marketplace. And plenty other articles to read there also. In fact, for a pretty well balanced history of the emerging church in USA, glean what you can from the past ten years of Next Wave [can you believe they first interviewed me ten years ago?] and the next time you teach on “What is the Emerging Church?” you wont sound like a moron.

Charlie, there’s a seminar title for you – “How to speak about the Emerging Church without sounding like a moron.”
