Just for kicks I thought we would do an all-Emergent A La Carte for today.
Emergent: Yesterday I attended a meeting in which my friend Paul presented a paper on the Emerging church. I thought he did a very good job of representing and critiquing this movement. He will be incrementally posting the paper here if you are interested in following along.
Emergent Bonus: Plenty of other people are writing about the “emergent weekend” in Toronto. Darryl Dash has some thoughts on the events he and I both attended, as well as events which I did not go to.
Emergent Bonus 2: Coloratura Christian has some very astute comments on Brian McLaren’s friends. She notes that whenever McLaren wants to suggest something that is anti-Biblical he comes up with a story of “a friend” who believes something. “I couldn’t help thinking of Mrs. Elton’s false humility in Jane Austen’s Emma. When complimented on her sandwiches, she responds with something like, ‘While I don’t say so, my friends say I certainly know how to make a sandwich.’”
Emergent Bonus 3: Ian, whom I finally met this weekend, has a good roundup of people who commented about this weekend’s proceedings.
