With Phil Sanders, Matthew Morine, and this blog discussing Emerging Church and Churches of Christ it seems there are A LOT of misconceptions out there. C Michael Patton clears up a lot of things in his most recent post at Parchment and Pen. I would highly suggest anyone wanting to know more about Emerging/Emergent church to read his post. It is very informed and informative. It also clears up a lot of misconceptions. He describes different strains of it, how and why it is not one size fits all, how it is more of a cultural phenomenon that is impacting views on Christianity rather than a particular church, and much more. Very helpful. Thank you Michael Patton!
