I really enjoy how Jonathan Brink simply frames emergence as a conversation. Specifically how important having conversation can be, and why many of us are drawn to it. It is not always useless rhetoric, though it can digress to that. It is ....
"rather .... a Sacred journey towards the Divine, towards the One we know as “The Word”. In our talk, we may be frivolous, we might be deceitful, we can technically “use the medium of language”, but ultimately all Conversation has the potential of drawing all things towards God."
(I didn't have time to get into the 100+ comments that follow these two posts, so beware on that front)
