the origin of emergent churches

Over at Inhabitio Dei, -one of my favorite sites in the world wide tubes-, Halden has posted a little note about the origin of the term "emergent" for churches. The best part is his opening,
"No, I don’t mean the current buzz word amongst western evangelicals for their version of how to coordinate a worship service."

I lol'd. The post goes on to note the political origins of the term, and how the term originally was employed against “bourgeois religion”, not the faith of a middle class steeped in christian CD's and NOTW shirts.
