Making room

The CofE has an interesting little book called "Mission-shaped church" that captures the result of long conversations about how to plant fresh expressions of the church. I've only cracked the first couple of pages, and found food for thought from the Archbishop of Canterbury's foreward:
If ‘church’ is what happens when people encounter the Risen Jesus and commit themselves to sustaining and deepening that encounter in their encounter with each other, there is plenty of theological room for diversity of rhythm and style, so long as we have ways of identifying the same living Christ at the heart of every expression of Christian life in common.

The book is available by PDF
