An Emergent with and for “Mainline” America

My hinnch is that in some regard, the mainline avoiding the conversation is because they perceive that some how, if they give in to the questions of ecclesiology and otherwise, that they are merely pandering to the more evangelical protestant agenda.
But these questions are about more than mere attempts to get people back into churches. Especially for those of us who so deeply love our traditions. In fact, one might say that because we love the depth of our traditions we are asking these questions!
