Publisher's notes ---
There is a undercurrent in the Christian subculture today. It's sort of
a hum, or buzz. I kind of think it's a God thing....It goes something
like this: "Things have changed, we have to change. Why? Because
God loves people and wants eternal relationship with them and we don't
want to stand in the way."
offerings in Next-Wave sort of underscore this idea. From Leslie
Ramusack's Real Life, which ponders her journey to another state and a
new city to be part of a new church to Jon Bogart's Survey, which
anecdotally tells him that we need to get "Off the Map." Eric
Stanford writes about the Not-So-Big Church.
analogizes Jesus as the Borg, bent on assimilation. "And" by
Dave Ferguson talks about what size church will accommodate postmodern
culture. Jordon Cooper review Dr. Sweet's latest book, Postmodern
Pilgrims. And last but not least, Matt Kutz examines Adam as an example
of Apostolic Leadership.
I am continually
amazed at the willingness of new participants to contribute to
Next-Wave. Your submissions are welcome. Join the "buzz."
