D.A. Carson, in his book "Becoming Conversant with the Emerging Church", cites an example of one particular person's move from basic orthodoxy to post-evangelicalism. "(His)...move was from the Brethren Church through Pentecostalism to the house church his present focus on post-evangelicalism. In his case, this includes Tuesday night meetings of a rather different form of church: the lounge bar of a South London pub, named Holy Joe’s. The atmosphere is relaxed: people can drink or smoke, participate as much or as little as they like in the worship evenings-which place a high value on contemplation, candle, symbols, ambient music-and if they don’t like it, they can move off to the main bar." (pg 25)

Is this a set up for a cartoon...or what?’s all true. Google... "Holy Joe’s"!!

Great cartoon! Impressive, as it puts it in perspective. Actually, that little gathering is no doubt as acceptable to God as a large segment of "worship" services across our nation. By the way, I loved the video clip on Theodicies. I like that guy.
