Comments: Considering Emerging Church

Hi Paul

I really liked your piece 'Considering Emerging Church'. I've been a christian for years, and over the last 2-3 years and especially the last few months I've found myself, on many occassions, worshipping 'in spite of' the church instead of 'because of' the church, and if I'm finding the church tough-going, irrelevant, not providing the opportunity to draw close to God, and I'm into my 40's, I can well imagine what it must be like for those in, say, their teens and twenties who are 'outside' the church.

I've found Leonard Sweet's books very good, and 'Churchless Faith' by another author very useful.

Hi! Thanks for the article. Have you got any contact details of places that are 'emerging church' - I'd like to pick some brains and hear about experiences etc
Thanks
