DALLAS DOES 'EMERGING CHURCH MOVEMENT'

My alma mater, Dallas Theological Seminary, has joined in the conversation about the "emerging" or "emergent church movement." This according to Andrew Jones (aka "Tall Skinny Kiwi"). As a grateful graduate, I offer mucho kudos to D.T.S. for this decision.

Andrew Jones writes, "I have just listened to a conversation (3 podcasts) on the emerging church by an American theological seminary. And I was impressed BIGTIME. It was a fair, reasonable, humble, well balanced dealing with the American emerging church - yes it leans on the academic and biases of the emerging church AUTHORS rather than practitioners, but these are Seminary professors and books are their language, the icons of their world. But its good, dang good, and i wish all seminaries would take this learning posture towards the emerging church" (emphasis added by me).

"Dang good." That must be one of those cross-cultural UK expressions. Getting a little edgy there, Tall Skinny Kiwi.

Thanks for the link. "Dang good" is pretty common here in Canada too, which is great, as I've never been "edgy" before. (wink)

Jamie,
Now what's with you UK and Canadian guys going all "dang good" on us not-so-with-it Americans? I think it's very good that DTS has entered the conversation.
