I meant to get online and write another piece to the question, “What is emergent?” but as the title suggests, it’s 1 a.m. and I’m no where near awake enough to write an explanation of Trinitarian based values.
We really enjoyed spending the evening with Tami and Michael tonight in preparation for their wedding tomorrow.
We had a good time with family and friends tonight and enjoyed some great steak at The Keg in Plano. Probably one of the best steaks I’ve had in a really long time — topped off with a great wine and a ginormous carrot cake (My blurry BlackBerry photo hardly does it justice. Hopefully Laurie got a better pic with our Nikon.)
Anyways, with a great dinner and great conversation, we didn’t leave the restaurant till after 11 and I didn’t make it back home till shortly after 12 (Laurie stayed in a nearby hotel with the other bridesmaids).
So, now I think it’s time to head to bed before a full day of wedding festivities tomorrow.
But as I head to bed, I’m wondering, what do you think about the question, “What is emergent?” Of the three areas I’ve touched on, do you agree with them? Do you disagree with them? Do you see them showing up in other traditions?
That’s it for now. Deace!
