5 Questions on the Emerging Church with Dr. Mark DeVineBy
If you want a balanced, conversative opinion on the emerging church “discussion” or conversation … please take the time to read through the good Doc’s Theology Prof blog.
I’ve told Dr. DeVine this in person and also by email and I want to say it publicly now … he’s making invaluable contribution to this hot, or better yet, FIERY topic.
I would never seek to speak for him … but I think what he’s attempting to do in this whole debate is to contribute a well-informed, thoughtful and discerning, balanced and reasonable look at the emerging church.
If, and I hope you are, having conversations about this topic in your church … I’d like to give one thought to take into those discussions about the emerging church: One size doesn’t fit all.
In other words, don’t lump all so-called “emerging types” together. Putting them all into one simple box is a disservice to those who love Jesus and want to make a difference in the world.
So before you do … go get a primar on this topic from a solid, Bible-believing, Jesus-loving, Ph.D., former missionary, Southern boy … who has a side-spllitting sense of humor …
Dr. Mark Devine, my friend, I am praying for you! Thank you for helping us wade through this discussion with grace and truth.
