Just got home from New Word Alive. What an incredible week.

At the same time, I wonder if NWA might turn out to be a dangerous conference for my generation, Christians from all over the stylistic map, all putting aside differences to focus on what really matters? Refusing to let interpretative distinctives on secondary matters segregate the true church of God, to the point where Presbyterian, Baptist, Charismatic, Cessationist, Dog-lovers, Cat-lovers and all and sundry can all happily worship and listen to God together? What, no suspicion of other church cultures? No cold-shouldering of 'dubious' sections of legitimate evangelicalism?

Very dangerous indeed.


  1. Ha, dangerous indeed. I still remember the qu you first asked me on meeting at Forum - can you recall the one qu you had with which to screen a Relay worker for 'your' CU? ;-) I'm sorry I didn't see you at NWA to catch up! And welcome to the blogosphere.

  2. Not a clue. It was probably something suitably dogmatic and narrow...?
