yes - spot on!

Thank you for the work you do.

A tall tattooed chick? Cool, I'd like to meet her...


Missed you last week...

I think in some ways you have identified why a great many folks are skeptocal of the EC: it seems like one more church growth movement among many. It may not be a fair assesment, but it exists. I think educating people about it will help, but I am not sure if it will help in the long-term. the good news in all this is that your synod has actually invited some conversation on the topic, something that is not going on everywhere.

Keep up the good work.

Snake Oil salesmen receive God's grace too; therefore smacking them may not be the best way to express the love of God. All that being said, I agree that one should not purchase the Emerging Church starter kit, even if one does exist. Your questions are a much better starting point.

Good job Nadia, I think your comments are right on and I look forward to seeing what type of identity emerges in the ELCA church you plan to start next winter.

Well spoken Nadia. The EC is not a seeker model with younger, more hip seekers. I'm so glad you are having opportunity to speak out on this.

I am going to Book Expo next week in New York City. I know there will be some semblance of EC starter kits for sale giving the publishing deals going on as well as the general Christian crapola. Here's my Q - what should I use to smack these people with when I find their stuff (and I will trust me). I am thinking a copy of Phyllis Tickle's Divine Hours might do the trick.

I just belly laughed, thank you... I needed it today.

Thank you! I just found your blog! I'm here in Midwest (lutherville) but did my internship in Rocky Mtn Synod. But "chasing the young adult" demographic is what everyone wants and no one knows what to do. They called me to do "young adult Ministry" among other things here, but really meant "why don't our kids go to church?" so it's interesting

welcome. i'd be interested to hear about you experience. you can email me from the blog.

Glad I made you laugh - people tend to find religious satirists funny UNTIL we shoot their sacred cow. Then holy cow ...

BTW-Despite all the "buzz" about emerging church - these books are barely visible at Book Expo. I did pick up a galley of Brian's latest from Thomas Nelson and it looks fantastic - but that isn't being marketed as "emergent" per se.
