Again my friend from Submerge has posted an amazing article on moving foward in the Emergent Church.
How’s this for a quote
true mission, someone in wisdom has noted is
‘finding out what God is doing and getting behind it’
Eddie Gibbs is quoted extensivly within the article. Eddie has just been contracted by us at .acom to write matterial and present some classes this year.
