The lone emerging church
I wonder just how many people are out there in the western world that within themselves are what we would call emerging (or post-modern or a new kind of Christian or whatever…), that are doing this all on their own? Perhaps they belong to a very modern or traditionlist church and just don’t have anyone to explore there emerging faith with. I speak a little bit from experience here, i do have friends who are part of the emergent church movement but they are few in number. On top of this i go to a fairly modern church. I least have a few people to turn to and discuss/pray/dialogue with but there must be some who dont have even that, probably quite a lot in rural areas.
How can we help and be there for our brothers and sisters?
This site is great for bringing people together but would lone emergent rangers think to even look for it? Would these people even think to look for others of there kind or would they just think they were strange and become downtrodden?
How does the church as a whole become more accessible to itself, let alone the big wide world?
Is this a problem?
What are your thoughts?
