Emerging Church, Residual Church

TallSkinnyKiwi has some very well-balanced thoughts on the Church that was, and is, and is to come:
Residual Church: The existing church that remains, that has existed and functioned previously and the impact of which still remains. The early church in the Book of Acts (emerging at the time) was influenced by the synagogue structure, secular assemblies (ecclesia) and Temple culture. Emerging Church today is paritally inherited from Residual Church and Residual Church is challenged and impacted by Emerging Church.

Both are cool. New and Old Wineskins have their place and appeal to different demographics. Both are needed.
Thanks for that, Andrew!
