    Default (non)Christianity for P's?

    I've found this stuff highly intriguing and genuinely fresh. I thought I'd share it as it feels to me that it addresses many of the discontents that I've seen repeated over and over on these forums, with traditional/established forms of Christianity.

    Some excerpts:

    "Ikon is neither a conservative or liberal community (although people who attend come from both traditions) for the point is not what you believe but whether you are willing to challenge and critique it."

    "A (non)definition celebrates the existence of an impenetrable fluidity and elusiveness which makes solid descriptions both impossible and unwelcome. Indeed, as a movement which is attempting to come to terms with that which cannot be reduced to words, we operate with a liquid system that celebrates ambiguity, openness and change"

    "The term ‘emerging’ should not then be thought of as a provisional one that will some day be replaced with the word ‘emerged’, for we embrace the idea that re-reading, critiquing, constructing and deconstructing are all processes which remain vital for our spiritual development."

    At last, a religion which celebrates pseudo-intellectualism. I particularly like this:

    "A (non)definition celebrates the existence of an impenetrable fluidity and elusiveness which makes solid descriptions both impossible and unwelcome. Indeed, as a movement which is attempting to come to terms with that which cannot be reduced to words, we operate with a liquid system that celebrates ambiguity, openness and change."

    Bravo!

    Ah, well, I think you've rather missed the point, but oh well
