Week 9, Response to Wednesday’s Class

November 26, 2007

Ryan mentioned in class with regards to the emerging church that one distinctive characteristics of this movement was that: “Churches arose out of those who were already sharing life together vs. starting a church service and then drawing people together to it.”  It seems right to make church be more about sharing life together regularly, thus have it form around those whom we are naturally drawn to. However, it seems that an overemphasis on this can be problematic as well- Where should a common vision and mission be what unites people rather than bonds of friendship alone?
