Well that is certainly a long blog. We have looked at some of Rob's stuff in our church and it has been really good. I have never read Brian's books, but some of the other pastors here have and seem to appreciate what he has to say. I don't totally understand the whole emerging thing. I think in it's best form that it is God breathing life into the dead bones? But it always gets me down when people call themselves emergent and complain about church from the outside. Rob's comment that some pastors have never taken communion outside of their tradition, once again, reminded me that there is a large group of Christians that I assumed didn't exist anymore. I love the church. I believe that "the local church is the hope of the world." I think that these guys do too. Your pretty stoked that you got to be there. Good insight that ripping up somebodies book is easy, but seeing them in person as a real human must make a big impression. Blessings.Sean
OK, your incredible at paraphrasing. Did you take a recorder or secretary with you? Wish I could have been there with you but thank you so much for providing your insite into the morning and sharing with us!
i'm in the middle of velvet elvis right now & although i may not agree w/rob on every pt, it has been challenging none the less...the journey has taught me to listen to those w/whom i agree & to hear those w/whom i quite possibly don't...i agree tho...i believe that these guys just seek God w/an authenticity that's true & scary to those not spending the time to examine it...their lose...what else can be said?
That must have been a great time listening to these two guys interact. Thanks for taking the time to summarize for us who couldn't be there. -- Jason Z.
ok... are we suppose to comment here or there... ;-)
Here... or there. :)
have you read "velvet elvis"? how is it?
It's the new "it" book to read.Translation: Good enough to get the buzz rolling and books sold... trendy enough to have a lot of criticism and jealousy.
Nicely done. I particularly like the part about seeing Jesus as the Center...experiencing that. Like your Blog.
