code-sharing emerging church

Today was the first day of a 2 day block course I teach at BCNZ introducing the emerging church. It involved 3 groups: BCNZ students; Praxis (community youth orientated training programme) and 4 visiting Americans interested in the emerging church as it applies to their Church of the Brethren Denomination.

Each of these 3 groups wanted to have time with me and so I suggested we all meet together, rather than me repeat myself 3 times. It certainly made for a much richer classroom interaction.

It was great to see a visiting American returning from having lunch with some of the BCNZ students, proudly showing off his L&P (iconic Kiwi) drink bottle.

(The course finishes at 12:30 tomorrow and I have to be at the International Airport at 1:30 pm to catch my flight to Melbourne.)

  1. Haha that L&P bottle was pure magic aye! We (a group of us that shared lunch with two of our American comrades) were joined by another such group, and he (sorry don’t know his name) couldn’t stop talking about the L&P bottle at Northlands! It was quite funny to witness one man’s fascination with a piece of plastic Kiwiana. But in more ways than one, it was awesome to witness it too. Because of our act of fellowship, he will return to America with a lot more than a plastic bottle =)
