Brian McLaren, one of the leading voices in the emerging church, wrote this excellent piece, “Kneeling with Turtles,” in Dream Seeker magazine. This is good stuff. In it McLaren actually discusses enlightenment, although very briefly. In What’s all the Pomotion and What is Church, I had written that I hadn’t seen the emerging church touch upon awakening / enlightenment / theosis yet.
This is a start—the potential is there. (On the other hand, it was published four years ago!)
