I helped create a site today that is going to potentially (if people get involved) serve as the online community of those who are Presbyterian and Emergent. This is from the about page:
Presbymergent is the online community for those who live in both the Presbyterian and Emergent/emerging church worlds and want to try and find a balance between the two.
We are pastors, lay people, seminarians, theologians, youth directors and people who generally care about both the Presbyterian Church (USA) and Emergent and the emergent conversation.
Feel free to join and post articles, questions and thoughts to the community. Grab the RSS feed and stay updated with information about presbymergent news. Post, discuss, share and support those who are working in and thinking about ministry in the margins.
I don’t know if it will take off or not, but I’m hoping that it at least serves as a helpful resource for those in the Presbyterian Church (USA) who need information about Emergent or who are interested in connecting with others who believe that the emerging church is not only something that ex-evangelicals resonate with.
One of my hopes is that it doesn’t become a place where people just come and try to tell us about the evils of Emergent – but rather, that it becomes a place of support for those who are in the midst of these two streams of thought, methodology, theology.
Come by, check it out and especially if you’re Presbyterian, read through the posts and think of ways you might be able to contribute to the site.
