Articles Of Faith: Emerging churches may keep Christians separated

The above article is one of the best observations of the “emerging” church I have found. It is even-handedly written and makes the case of the need for and the problems with starting churches for a narrow segment of the population. It appears to me that the emerging church is to the Gen-X population what the Mega-church is for the Baby-boomers.

In a “perfect” world, we could do church with a multi-generational, racial, and socio-economic blending, but until then it seems that the direction that people are responding too is niche based. It has been said that Sunday morning is the most segregated hour in our society. I can’t believe that this is what God wants from the church, but I am at a loss as to how we correct it.
