Is There Anything?

Is there anything that your church community is doing on a Sunday morning that Jesus would be doing if he were physically present?

It’s an important question driving much of the philosophy embodying emerging expressions of the Church.

Note: This essential question comes from Joe Boyd, of Apex, Las Vegas, in the book Emerging Churches: Creating Christian Community In Postmodern Cultures by Ryan K. Bolger and Eddie Gibbs. I would highly recommend this more objective and lightly academic book (when compared to some – not all – of the books written from strongly within the emerging Church movements) for those wanting to understand more of what is going on in our postmodernly contextualized communities.
