    Hey, thanks for posting the link!

    I went and listened to the talk on the emerging church, and I have to say that I was disappointed. The speaker seemed to think that the emerging movement is somehow centered around the youth. While I agree that there are a lot of young people involved in emerging stuff, I think there is a lot more to it than that. I find this article to be a much better description of what is going on:

    Damien,

    That’s interesting. I’ll have to listen again. I appreciated his defining “emerging” as an ongoing process for the last 2 millenia of connecting the unchanging Gospel with our changing culture.

    Much of the conference was focused on not repeating the last 25 years but building on it and being continually growing. Which, for a bunch of Boomers often means “young people.” (Even though we have families and all now!)

    I just listened to it a bit again, perhaps it wasn’t so bad. I think I was perhaps a bit turned off by what seemed to me to be more of a “young people” focus. I just hadn’t heard it that way before.

    Lately I have been feeling saddened for how youth focused our society has become. I think that a difficult challenge for the church that wants to be culturally relevant for young people is to also be relevant for old people as well. I have lots more thoughts on this, but no more time to write!
