I was just listening to Todd Friel of Way of the Master Radio, interviewing Emergent Doug Pagitt.
I invite you to listen to this conversation as well (only the 1st 20 minutes are Todd and Doug) and it is nothing short of amazing. It's why I just...can't...take...the Emergents. Dave Parker is just an exemplar, and he's not the worst of the bunch. May God have mercy.
