plenty thinking, not much writingThat entry title sums it up, yes?
Much going on in the brain since hearing Phyllis Tickle at the ECW Conference. She spoke at length about the reformation she believes we in North American Christianity, and the next dominant model of church will be that of Emergent. . .not the only model, mind you. But that our options will be to walls ourselves off, retradition our own denominations, or find some place of connection between our traditions and the emerging Emergent (please don't think I'm quoting her directly in terms of word choice--I'm typing this without my notes in front of me).
I had picked up Brian McLaren's Generous Orthodoxy but had set it down in the midst of working on other things. . .I'm back to it again, although it's juggling space with McCulloch's biography of Cranmer and other things I'm perusing for an adult forum on the history of the Prayer Book. . .reading about that Reformation seems quite timely, actually.
I guess there was some writing, after all.
