Wild Goose Festival: Voices of the Emerging Church

July 23, 2011

Organizers of the Wild Goose Festival, held last month in North Carolina, identify with the Emerging Church, a movement described by some scholars as the biggest shift in Christianity since the Reformation. Adherents say the Emerging Church is anti-hierarchy, pro-social justice, and looks at biblical texts as being more fluid than in the past, all in response to generational and cultural changes. "People are going to create new versions of what Christian community looks like," says Doug Pagitt, an author, pastor and festival participant. "It doesn't mean the old are going to go away -- they're going to lose influence, though, in my view -- they're going to open pathways for new expressions to take place."
