An interesting twist. A recent post “Horton on Emerging Church” starts with Emerging Church getting spanked by the Reformed folk, who are usually upset that the elements of church they thought they got rid of during the Reformation are re-appearing among the younger generation. But then, 30 comments into the conversation, an Orthodox believer (hi Joe!) comes on the comments and suggests strongly that Emerging Church are just faddish and are not going deep enough into the traditions and relics of the Orthodox/Catholic traditions . . . ie, the ones that the Reformed people tried to destroy with crowbars and bonfires.
Maybe they are both right?? Really . .. you cannot win these arguments. But I thought i would make this post in case anyone wanted to bring the conversation over here to these comments.
