I coined a phrase a while back to describe the growing dissatisfaction, almost despair with “the way things are” in our current expressions of christianity. This appears to be a crisis of faith, but really it’s just a crisis of ecclesiology.
Brad Hightower has composed a few thoughts on this theme, and has posted them:
- A Crisis in Ecclesiology – Part 1 – Taking Action One Day at a Time
- Church as New Society â€“ Socialization and the Church
- Family as Church â€“ Ecclesiology in Crisis â€“ Part 3
- Revolution in Ecclesiology – A “Both/And” Solution
Meanwhile, Kester Brewin is asking, Is the Emerging Church Lacking the Spirit? …something of an interesting question, and one that some of the post-charismatic types among us are asking — or answering. Kester provides a links to some thoughts on the subject by Jason Clark as well.
