It seems my previous reflection on the “postmodern” embrace of the Em Churchers has gotten some attention I don’t normally receive (and probably don’t deserve). Reverend Mike offers up some gracious agreement on some points. BeChurch has two entries, here and here. And organic church also offers up some comments.
The comments touch nerves, so I wanted to be clear to the Em Churchers: I did not mean my comments in any way to be taken as mere rhetoric to score some Orthodox points. I meant them quite seriously, and sincerely await responses.
There is a part of my questioning that is also–assuming that I have the right understanding on the matter–meant to serve as a warning to my brothers and sisters who are, like me, in search of the genuine life of Christ in the Church.
