Foursquare Church, The Lake, Promoting Contemplative and the Emerging Church

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Contemplative spirituality has been influencing many evangelical denominations, and the Foursquare denomination is one of those that has been affected. The Lake is a Foursquare Church and according to their Mission Statement, they are helping “wanderers … restore and rebuild their lives around Jesus.” But The Lake is also introducing these “wanderers” to contemplative spirituality through emerging church leaders like Brian McLaren and Tony Campolo. On a church resource page, recommended books are written by McLaren and Campolo as well as Leonard Sweet, Erwin McManus and Chuck Smith, Jr. On the same resource page, links take visitors to an online labyrinth and websites like The Ooze and Relevant Magazine (both of which heavily promote contemplative spirituality and the emerging church).
