Cedar Falls Bible Conference
August 2, 2006
I'm in Iowa for a few days, speaking for the second year running at the Cedar Falls Bible Conference. It was good to be with Mike Horton again who spoke on (among other issues) the Emergent (-ing) Church. It was vintage Mike; pithy, laced with one-liners, generous with a sting in the tail. Some memorable one-liners I jotted down included, "I don't go to church to meet a personality or charisma, but God"; "Jesus did not target a demographic; he went to 'sinners'"; "The Emergent Church consists of well-educated, upwardly-mobile, Starbucks-slurping whites--I don't see them engaging poor, unemployed blacks in San Francisco!"
