My friend Steve Knight tells me I should keep an eye on the blogosphere. Apparently there’s been buzz surrounding disappointment of Emergent Village. I’m writing this as I prepare to missionally engage my community this morning. Hoping to spark good conversation and dream up kingdom experiments with a group of folks I’ve been meeting up with here Salisbury, North Carolina. Ever heard of the city? So…I’m getting ready to fuel discussion and nurture an environment for creative kingdom activity in a community that has a gang problem. I’m stoked for the Jesus movement that is emerging here where I live…I’m also excited about the recent activity of Emergent Village 2.0. Alot of planning and strategy going on. I was one of the 24 that met in DC some months ago. So…there’s activity taking place. Christianity 21 with Jopa productions (Tony Jones and Doug Pagitt). And I’m sure many others are doing something emergentesque and missional in their parts of the world. The shift is taking place. Folks are out and about playing their role in this emerging Jesus-movement in the United States and abroad. That’s why I’m curious about the disappointment people are describing with Emergent Village. Emergence are everywhere in the kingdom of God. So…as I step out into the missional stream this morning looking for God’s activity @ the local hub I will pray for those who are disappointed. I pray they find their place in this wonderful Jesus-movement that is sprouting up all over the country now.
