A friend of mine (and former student) asked me recently about conversing with older people in his church about emerging practices. He asked if I had any guidance. I think he already had his answer. Conversations. I believe that many emerging church practitioners leave their church because the conversation has stopped. And sometimes it needs to, if it is toxic and brings death. However, we have glimmers of what can happen when the conversation continues. At Tribal Generation/St. Tom's in Sheffield, UK, Eddie Gibbs and I saw "80-somethings" sitting around the dance floor supporting the club culture worship environment. How inspiring! Somehow, bridges were built and conversations continued in that community. These 'gray-hairs' (as they are called) understood that these younger people were faithful adherents to Christ within their culture. Someone translated these odd and peculiar practices to them, and the church conversed about the many ages in their midst. To the older people, what might have seemed like pagan idolatry in their understanding of world became faithful and contextual indigenous worship. Unfortunately, St. Tom's is currently an exception, but it is a community that gives Eddie Gibbs and I hope for a multi-generational community that engages the future.
