What are you doing this Sunday morning? Are many of the emergent types still directly involved in traditional church, or have we deserted a formal Sunday service? The breath of fresh air passing over the CofE in the form of Fresh Expressions, would seem to owe a lot to the alt worship movement, and even more to the emergent communities growing around the church's edges. Do we owe a duty to support our roots? Do we need to support a struggling mother church? An organization that grew most of the "leaders" of the emergent conversation, and may well be employing them. To mind comes CMS, providing income to several bloggers out there. So as we grow our new roots, should we look to send at least spending some effort supporting our local places of worship? Or is it time to put aside "out dated" structures and go it alone? I'm not promoting either view, or even know what would be the right move in my own life. I do know that more and more services fail to enthuse me. but still odd words and sentences break through my hardness and God still breaks in and stirs my soul. The song should I stay or should I go now, kind of sums up some of my thoughts. It may be time to strike out into the wilderness and find my oasis in the vastness. It may be time to till my land and stir up the old roots, encouraging old plants to spring forth new growth. and the old earth to be planted with new seed. Which ever is right, it is time to step aside, to pause and find that route. With Lent coming closer perhaps it is time to follow some readings, give up a lot of things that is unhealthy in my life, and to seek Christ.
