What you do for fun and re-creation?
hike, pilgrimage, chant, cook, talk to trees on a regular basis.
What do you see as some of the biggest challenges facing Anglicans today?
Finding ways to hold together in our diversity, with grace so as to be free to do the important work God is waiting for us to join God with in the world.
What do you see as some of the biggest opportunities for Anglicans today?
New inspiration from movements like the emerging church. New chances to truly do justice and grow in faith with solidarity with a world in need.
What do you want Anglimergent to be? and what other Anglimergent resources, gatherings, activities or events would you find helpful for your ministry?
I'm excited to see mainline communities, from which I draw my roots becoming interested and supportive of this "conversation." My experience with the Emerging church and related Missional movements is that they can become fragmented or transitory- so anything, like this place that connects and promotes communities is very helpful to me, I think.
It would be great to see more Anglican-wide, or even inter-denominational conversations around the Emerging church and other new vibrant, progressive expressions of the Christian faith in deep conversation with our roots.
