I love this article Jollyblogger: Revolution vs. Reformation I would definately place myself in the radical reforming tradition. Maybe some would call me a revolutionary reformer cos I see a lot of reforming being needed
Truth is that I am passionate about life, change in the Church, but for me that has always been in and through the Church (in my case the Methodist Church) not by creating alternatives. In any case there is so much that God is doing in and outside his Church that I find myself fully occupied trying to keep up with him
Mind you I am intrigued by the JollyBloggers belief that that it is the post-modernists who are the revolutionaries. Over the history of the Church both modernism and post-modernism are recent blips on the timeline. I find it interesting when I notice ways in which post-modernism echoes elements of much earlier Church history ie pre-modernism. Some examples of where I personally see this in the rise of Ignation Spirituality and in the use of Iona & Taize worship in a variety of contexts.
