Thank you Grandad! You have inspired many of us too over the years.

Looks like a worthwhile read from a post-emergent (ex?) perspective too.


I will look forward to reading that, thanks. I find I am unwilling to choose between 'evangelical' and 'catholic' in shaping theology for a fresh exp/project or personally, preferring to embrace the paradox of the both/and where we can and try to learn from both streams, but you're right, on some issues you have to make "policy decisions" and take one view or the other.

We are trying to make those decsions in the light of where the inherited church is in its evolution aswell as the needs of the people and place we are called to serve, so that somehow we can be heard and we can listen in both places. (No-one said it was going to be easy!) Maybe its one of the aspects of emergence that we feel free to range around the 'sweet shop' of the past and find resonance in a number of practices, history that opens doors to the future, in all the traditions.
