If I speak for anyone, I think that I can speak for the average Joe (or Jane) who finds himself out of step with church as usual.
It seems like two left turns past traditional and a right just beyond conventional and you find yourself in the middle of the emerging zone wondering, "How the heck did I get here!"
Next thing you know, you are using words like resonate, praxis, and missional.
What are you supposed to do with your desire for change, the nagging discontent with things as they are?
Should you be the one to create something different, something that expresses the values that are in your heart?
When is creating something different necessary?
When is it better to just adapt, adjust your expectations, and become the change you wish to see?
Sure it would be great to be supported and encouraged in your values, to be surrounded by other like-minded people. It would also be great to win the lottery and wear a size 4. Oh well.
Maybe publisher's clearing house will come knocking on your door someday.
And maybe someone will start an awesome emerging missional community just around the corner from where you live...someday.
