The Emergent ‘Church’ Finds a New Way to Entice Newcomers…

Because, seriously, what says emergent religion quite as well as sticking one’s head in a toilet

Most people would only put their head down a toilet basin if they were overcome with the need to vomit. But now those searching for a way to take ‘planking’ to a new level of daring are getting an up close view of the U-bend too. Christened ‘plumbking’, the practice of using a toilet to capture even crazier poses is catching on with pictures emerging on the internet.

Word on the street is, if you want to join an emergent community, this is how they practice their rite of ‘baptism’  (with thanks to M. Acidri on the FB for the tip).

    Well you are getting your wish I guess. The emergent conversation seems to be fading. But there is still hope I think for a postmodern Christianity that has outgrown the two modernisms of 1) the Biblical literalism of the conservative side where axe heads must have floated and you are a heretic if you don’t believe that is is absolutely required that you believe it and 2) liberal Protestantism. I don’t have direct experience of the latter except through reading, but it doesn’t quite fit me either.

      the emergent movement was never anything more, and is now nothing more, than a fad. and fads always fade away as soon as the novelty wears off.
