really excellent article - thank you. The article he links to at the end on emerging church=gen x is also well worth reading. v challenging for us.

Yes, some brilliant insights here and I think it raises an important question. I agree that being incarnational is more than joining an interest group and bringing up the topic of spirituality. But what actually does it mean to incarnate in the post-Christian West where cultural memories of Christendom still linger? And how do you incarnate into a culture which is post-Christian yet still holds many Christian values and which holds ideas and opinions on how Christianity should operate itself? Have we got any further with this one yet?
