TREK conversation in Portland, Oregon, on the prophetic church

Wes White and I helped run a TREK theological conversation with a group of leaders, pastors and students in various stages of emergence in Portland, Oregon, from 11th to 13th November, 2007. The theme for the conversation was: How and in what way is the church prophetic? Along with that, what is the prophetic ministry today and how is it done? These are some of the ten papers that were presented and discussed.

Re: on the prophetic church

Query:

In your view, does the definition of the concept of prophetic equate with the definition of the concept of heraldic?

Re: on the prophetic church

On the face of it, I don’t see any great connection between the two terms. What do you mean by ‘heraldic’? Something like ‘emblematic’ or ‘symbolic’? Or do you mean pertaining to the announcement of a herald - so ‘kerygmatic’?

For those interested in the prophetic imagination, I recently ran across the Jesus Manifesto blog/webzine site. 

Someone just recently published the 12th part in a series of essays on the prophetic imagination.  Part twelve is linked below and from there you can access the remaining 11 essays.
