Believe it or not, I have found several blogs of people in the churches of Christ who are trying to figure out this new movement called “the Emerging Church”.
Personally, I’m not completely sold on the Emerging Church, but I do think that it is good that they are trying to figure out how to relate with the 21st Century western culture. I appreciate their willingness to thrash through the issues of traditional -vs- Scriptural. And I think that especially hyperconservative churches of Christ need to ask themselves hard questions about this issue (as do all Christians from every Christian background).
Of course, some Emergents go too far and throw the baby out with the bathwater, so that Scripture plays little role. But I appreciate that God is using this movement to continue the building of His kingdom.
The church of Christ and the Emerging Church? Wow. That’s a union I didn’t see coming. It’ll be an interesting discussion!

If you Google “church of Christ” and “emerging” or “emergent church” together, you’ll find more.
