Simonas (from Lithuania) left a thought provoking question on my comments a few days ago:
"the idea of the emerging church is very interesting and intriguing. i'd definitely like to find out (and, mind you, experience) the concept.
another thing i wanted to ask - why people blog, especially those, who are in this church approach? i like the idea myself, but i'm interested to find out the reasons that others have.
thanx a mill. Simonas"
The task of defining the emerging church is a mammoth one, (and i just got asked today to write up a definition) and i dont want to try it here, but it is fascinating that blogging plays a significant role. Many bloggers are also players in the emerging church. It is obvious that there is a cross-over of values - new media values and new church values, and the world of blogdom is one of those crossroads. when i get time, i would love to write something up and uncover this whole thing.
