Discussion Group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PomoChurch (not very active) Description: "This E-Group is for those who are in ministries reaching out to the emerging postmodern culture through starting new services within a church, church plants etc. If you have questions to ask other churches, or ideas to share, discussions on worship, or problems you want suggestions about from others who have been down that road....this is what this is for. If you have a web site, add it to the "links" list so others can see who your ministry is and we can learn from each other."  Recommended by Earl Creps(Posted 11/15/2001)
