Emergence: A Year in Review

One of my favorite parts of this time of year is all the "year-in-review" articles and stories. Here is one by Jonathan Brink about what the Emergent Church was up to in 2010. It's honest and hopeful. I especially enjoyed this paragraph:

The emerging church isn’t dead. It’s just finally wrestled with the angel and won. It’s shedding it old image, the one that got people so riled up in the first place. The conversations won’t ever go away because in the end, we’re looking for what it means to be human. We’re looking to discover the reality that Jesus was trying to present, one of infinite grace and beauty, stark reality of the kingdom of God in our midst, and a renewed sense of possibility for the restoration of the world.
