Call Out: Thoughts on Quakerging

Recently I had an email query:

I’m
increasingly curious about the connection (if any) between Quakers and
emerging church. I have had some thoughts about this for some time, but I
wonder what your perspective (and religious background and geographical
background) is.

I thought I’d throw it out to everyone so as to get a more well-rounded perspective, because for some strange reason, I have a sense that my experience isn’t exactly like everyone else’s. ๐Ÿ™‚ I know folks have got some great thoughts on whether Querging (Quaking and Emerging) really works, and if so, where that’s happening. If I was really good and had time, I’d dig through all of your wonderful blogs and pull out your posts. But realistically, I have to wake up my child in two minutes to drag to Bible study, then to the store, then home, yowl at him and the cat to STAY OUT OF THE CHRISTMAS TREE, throw some food down his throat, chuck him into his crib, and then work on the pile of Christmas Projects I took upon myself because somehow I thought my days were boring and spent eating bon bons and watching soaps.

SO, just to let you, oh query-er know, I am thinking about your question. I’m calling upon the collective knowledge of bloggers and commenters to provide their best stuff (new or old on):

  • Emerging Church
  • Quakerism
  • If/How the emerging conversation fits within other denominations
  • Specifically, if Querging is possible/happening
  • If you don’t blog, you should start. ๐Ÿ™‚ But if you don’t want to start, leave a comment. If you do blog, you can either post links to your best posts here, or compile those links into a post and leave that post here.
