12/3/2012 – Emerging vs. Emergent Churches: Clearing up the Confusion

December 3rd, 2011 | Posted by admin in Articles - (Comments Off on 12/3/2012 – Emerging vs. Emergent Churches: Clearing up the Confusion)

I’m often asked about the difference between the emerging and emergent church. The following article is one of the best that I’ve read on the subject. I don’t know of anyone better than Jason Carlson (www.Jude3.com) who approaches this subject with humility, honesty, and truth. He was involved with the emergent church movement during its conception. His perspective has been a tremendous blessing to me and countless others as well.

The Emergent Church–Moving From Absolute To Authentic

February 5th, 2011 | Posted by admin in Articles - (Comments Off on The Emergent Church–Moving From Absolute To Authentic)

Over the next few weeks, Shane is revisiting articles that drew the most feedback in 2010. Here is the final one…
