To start your own postmodern conversation or find out more about Emergent, you can become a friend of Emergent Village, Emergent's non-movement.
However, much of the emerging church conversation is done on the Internet. While there are too many to sites and weblogs to list, here are a few:
Next-wave—updated monthly, this site has articles and a weblog by its publisher, Charlie Wear, a grandfather who has a skateboarding ministry.
The Ooze—has articles, news, blogs, and plenty of links "to create environments where church leaders (traditional teachers/theologians as well as emerging storytellers/artists) can converse about and collaborate on resources and experiences."
EmergingChurch.info—has articles and blogs, and calls itself a "touching place for the emerging church."
Vintage Faith—has articles, music and book discussions, and is part of Vintage Church in Santa Cruz, California.
