Hammett on Emerging Church 3.1

Advent 2005

Its Dec 1. Let the Christmas season begin! If you have some ideas for 2005, its about time to get the word out. As far as I know, there is no blog project lined up for this year. Some of us who participated in the world's first GridBlog followed it up with an Advent :: Grid Blog a week later. I am often wrongly credited with it but it was actually Bob Carlton and Steve Taylor (Emergent Kiwi) who kicked it off by suggesting an image and bloggers responded with thoughts and poetry, adding the :: tag so it could be easily aggregated on Google. Each week had a different image and idea.

Seeksmall

it
appears
backstage
the kingdom of God
an entrance
unpromoted
without applause
in genres unused
in fonts never bold
in places hidden
corners


it
appears
backstage
eluding those
who scramble for the prized
who lust after the spectacluar
who never find themselves
backstage


the presence of God appears
among poor people
seekers
who are learning where to look.
