Lots of Love for the Emerging Church
Have you notice the number of blog posts lately talking about the positive good the emerging church movement has had? The posts usually (but not always) reminisce about how the movement has been an important part of the authors journey. They are a good reminder of the significance this movement has been in breathing new life into the spiritual wandering of so many.

There have been even more “Is the Emerging Church Movement Dead?” posts and even a few of the posts noted above almost sound like eulogies. For a perspective on this, you might read David Fitch’s “Emergent, Organic, Missional Church: Methinks We Worry Too Much.”
Most good movements eventually fade as the nucleus of the church takes on the beneficial elements it espoused and is transformed. Let’s hope this is the case with the emerging church movement.
