During the conference I had more than a few conversations that went something like this:
Josh: “There is a lot of confusion today in the church about what ’emergent’ is. “
Random emergent guy: “Well, I guess that includes me, too.”
(This was quickly followed by Josh simutaneously experiencing both a sense of confused ignorance and of warm identification.)
To highlight this, Wikipedia (which is a wonderful resource that I am only partially familiar with)has put a cleanup tag on the “emerging church” article. The article’s too “messy.” Go figure.
Take a look at some of the editorial comments– just to be amused, or perhaps to help clean the article up.
