Are You Un-Churched?

Carl E. Olson (Envoy Magazine) skewers the "un-church phenomenon":
Needless to say, Mike isn't into history, doctrine, dogma, and the complexities of Christology, ecclesiology, soteriology, and every other "-ology" that has a rich and meaningful and living place in the life of the Church. It's all about him and Jesus, him and his Bible, and him and his private prayer time. Hey, it's wonderful that he's in love with Jesus. But it seems to me that he might also be in love with being in love with Jesus, just as these myriads of little groups and experimental "churches" are in love with being different, being experimental, being cool and hip. . . .
