Birthing Advice

21 January, 2003 1:20 PM

In response to my Living Room update post a day or two back I had a number of good emails which have confirmed the direction I was thinking of taking. Steve from Emergent Downunder and I have been conversing on the topic - he posted this on his blog - great advice from someone who has done and is doing it! Some of it is similar to Phil's article. Steve's main points for someone wanting to birth a new community are:

1. Have fun.
2. Planters will shape it.
3. The hardest thing will be letting go.
4. Serve the culture.
5. Don't push too hard the dualisms between church and community.

There is lots more detail in his post.Thanks mate.
