A Brit reflects on his experience at Willow from an emerging/alt.worship perspective. He models generosity and honesty in his evaluation. This paragraph stood out to me:
…while I dislike the ‘church as corporation’ model I discovered at Willow, I am challenged by their commitment to doing things well and getting things done. Too often there’s an amateurishness to building Church (and, for that matter, doing worship) among alt/emerging groups which has more to do with laziness and slipshod approaches than to do with theology or missiology. What’s wrong with working out a clear plan, with a clearly stated set of outcomes and then working and planning to see those outcomes come to fruition? To me the answer would be ‘nothing, provided that the whole process is subject to continuous review and adjustment and is realistic about the fact that we’re culturally plotting a course in unmapped territory’.
