Deep Church

Received this article via a mailing I regularly receive from Emergent. Not sure what the appropriate collective noun is for them, but it's a network of leaders and thinkers trying to think differently about the church for the future. The main site has podcasts and articles - including stuff by Brian McLaren, if you've come across his stuff.

This article provided an interesting view on taking the idea of church more seriously, and also a warning that emerging church is not all about novelty. You'll need to read it to see what I'm going on about.

Mike, thanks for this link. I'm going to an emerging churches meet tomorrow- some of us in and around Glasgow who are just putting our toe in the water. That article will be useful - cheers!
