Have no problem with the term. Find the term helpful. Will continue to use the term. Think the very POINT of the term is to direct our attention beyond the whole label concept (even though this is a goal we will never fully accomplish).

What a fine piece of journalism! It made me aware that the labels I use to identify myself are actually controlled by marketing experts, who have recently decided its totally uncool. So I guess I need to stop using it, huh...

This is my favorite quote:

"They appear to have learned from the emerging church’s mistake—define purpose and doctrine early so your identity doesn’t get hijacked. If they do their work carefully, perhaps the new network can avoid getting 'wacked' in every sense of the word."

I'm going to get right to work on starting a new movement and defining it doctrinally so that it will always be exactly what I want it to be. That's the point of life, right?

(If you can't tell, I'm pretty short on patience right now)
