Much has been said and written about the emergent church lately. It is a very diverse group of mostly former fundamentalists and evangelicals trying out a new way of being church similar to what Progressive Christians have been talking about for the last few decades. Here is a video of Peter Rollins from the Ikon Community in Ireland doing an interview with the Inner Compass show from Calvin College. He raises some important questions.
• In what way is Christianity a set of beliefs that we give assent to to belong to the community, or does being a Christian make us different people and changes our ways of looking at the world?
• How would church be different if we could become more honest about who we are and what our motivations lead us to be?
• How do our actions lead to living out the way Jesus taught his disciples?
