Today I posted the section of the emerging church paper detailing what I think are good things within the movement.
I have already asked (and received) from David Wayne at Jollyblogger his list of benefits - although I am hoping for more from him.
Now I am trying to provoke my friend Darryl Dash to do the same - even though it is Easter week and we are all busy! (If it is too much for this week - I will let you have to the 21st Darryl! After that I am going to send over a couple of guys from the church...)
What I am really trying to find out from those who know better than me, is what specific things emergent alone has to offer the church at large. I think this is a very worthy question. If there are none, then we might as well just move on. If there are some, then we all need to know them. If there are only a few, then let's own them and press on. If there are hundreds, then let's stop and re-think everything we are doing.
And there is no point in vagueries. We need to know specifically, what are we missing that emergent has to offer?
