On Emerging Church

24 January, 2004 10:39 AM

An experience of God is an interesting article worth taking a look at. Here are a few excerpts:

'Most of the evidently successful "mega-churches" and
church-growth movements have actually been failures because they have watered down the "radical gospel message of transformation of individual and
community lives," a leading religious innovator told a crowd of nearly 1,000
Presbyterian leaders on Jan. 23....

He said his studies of "the emerging church" have revealed that all
successful 21st-century churches are:

- Intentionally missional;
- Multicultural;
- Multi-sensory; and
- Multi-media.

"Post-moderns don't want to be put on a committee," he said. "They
want to be equipped to make a difference in the lives of others."'



I have heard the idea of being a "multi-cultural" Emerging Church many times. Can someone tell me what it means in practical sense in the Aussie/Melbourne context? How do you go about it? What is such a church like?
