Is emerging only Western?
Question >> Is the emerging church going to be primarily a Western European, US, Canadian, Australian/NZ), educated, urban, caucasian thing? How is emerging church culture “emerging” in the Two-thirds world?
djchuang >> this is the exactly question beginning to be raised in the emerging conversation, which has largely been represented by the Western surburban educated Caucasian world. See blog today by Jen at in reaction to Andrew Jones’ thoughts on it – who is one of the leading voices in the emerging topic, and also at Emergent Village’s message board
Another angle on it – minorities are even more marginalized and fewer in the emerging conversation [there’s Rudy, Karen, Andre, me, Sivin, that more quickly come to mind] than they are in real life, but they’re not quite completely absent. 🙁
