The Church in America from a British Perspective

A couple of months ago, I published a guest post by Peter who is from the UK. That post was called “House Churches: British Experiences to Teach the USA.” I really appreciated Peter’s post because it is always valuable to read other people’s perspectives, especially those who are outside the current situation or context.

Arthur at “The Voice of One Crying Out in Suburbia” has now published another guest post from someone else in the UK. His guest blogger is Christopher, and the post is called “The American Church – From the Outside Looking In – An English Perspective.”

While Peter’s post (that I published) primarily focused on house or organic church, Christopher’s post (that Arthur published) focuses on several different aspects of the American church. He calls them Charismaniacs, the Religious Right, the Reformed, the Emerging Church, and Organic/Simple Church Movement.

Once again, I enjoyed reading Christoper’s perspective on the church in America (just as I enjoyed reading Peter’s earlier perspective). I think that we (as Christians in America) can learn considerably by listening to those outside our borders, especially other brothers and sisters in Christ.

What are you thoughts about Christoper’s post?
