The Emergent Conversation 31 January, 2006Posted by Benjamin P. Glaser in Emergent Conversation, PTS.
I have been reading a lot of Blogs the last couple of days on and about the Emergent Conversation. However, I still do not completely understand exactly what this movement is or what it specifically stands for or against. I am looking forward to attending a session the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary is holding on February 9th with Dr. John Franke. Dr. Franke- who is Associate Professor of Theology and Chair of the Faculty at Biblical Seminary-will along with other emergent leaders from the Pittsburgh area will be presenting a workshop on the Emergent movement.
Just to give you a little of my interpretation I do have a feeling of “superiority” being given off by this movement- a “super christian” type vibe-that may or may not be accurate, which is why I am looking forward to this event. I have often been personally offended by persons within the evangelical movement and those who espouse non-traditional worship styles. I understand that the Emergent Conversation is an offshoot group that does wish to remove itself from the evangelical movement. I hope to be proven completely and utterly wrong.
