A sad day for emergent

Hot off the presses at The Holy Observer: "Local Emergent Church Recedes"
Rancho Buena Vista Community Church, until recently called Vista Journey, has 'receded' from the 'emergent' church movement, according to its pastor, Andrew Hardy..."Yeah, we were really into that whole 'emergent' thing for quite a while. But it got old real fast. Like I'm really gonna preach in a recliner for the rest of my career!"
Read the rest of this tragic story here. Perhaps someone should send a "vision re-casting cohort" out to Vista Journey to help them reconnect with their postmodern God-vibe?

this pastor and this church is a great candidate for the next round of fads from the purpose driven crowd ... emergent was just the next fad ...

Do you really think so? I think the difference between a fad and a movement might be the long term impact, and if that's the case, whether emergence is a fad or a movement remains to be seen...
