Emerging and emerging worship
"...the emerging church and its worship are unavoidable if the Christian mission is to continue into the future. So emerging is not simply a name for Gen X ministry. It's much more significant than that: it's the way that the church moves forward from here.... The emerging movement does not ask people to make false choices between having traditional and contemporary forms of worship, praise bands or organ, lay or ordained ministries. There is no reason why worship cannot continue using all that is authentic and true." Dennis Bushkofsky, guest editor of Liturgy: Emerging Worship, vol. 26.2 (2011), 3.
