Join the Journey
After much debate and doubt I decided it was time to step into the arena of blogging. I am not real sure what will come of this space and effort but I know what I am hoping for. I am hoping that this can be a place where ideas will be exchanged about what many are calling the emerging church. Many think that the emerging church is just for those who are in a certain age bracket, however I think this is all wrong. The so called emerging church is more about people of any age, race, background or lifestyle who are seeking to know God. The so called emerging church is a gathering of people, and minds, who think the church has been missing the point to some degree in the past few decades and possibly centuries. The so called emerging church is a gathering of people who are politically active as individuals, but more concerned as a church with collectively being the Body of Christ. This means radically living a life based on the teachings and life of Jesus Christ. I want to be clear that no one, myself included, ever lives the life Christ taught and showed every moment of every day. Still there are some who are working to live more and more like Christ everyday. I invite you to join in this journey and see how God uses all of us. I will start with a question, what is the most significant issue facing the church today?
