creativity and anger drive emerging church I said with a smile


Don’t I look cheery? This is a photo of me being interviewed in the Methodist Touchstone denominational magazine (I blogged about this back here). The article is titled “Creativity, anger drive emerging church?” and starts “Media-driven cultural change and resentment against established institutions are the two forces behind the alternative congregations commonly labelled ‘emerging churchÂ’. This is the view of Rev Steve Taylor

Seeing the words “anger” in black and white sort of sat me back a bit. Is it a fair description? Is it a worthy energy driver and a healthy missionary motivation?

PS. There are also articles on two emerging churches; Side door (one of the congregations at Opawa) and Urban Vision, in Wellington.

  1. I don’t see how you couldn’t include anger as a driving force. It’s a fair assessment of how some – though not all – are entering the conversation.

    Worthiness and health are another matter.
