Terms: Emergent vs. Emerging

Here are a few posts regarding what the origin of the terms Emerging and Emergent came from according to Dan Kimball.

Here are a few distinctions...
Emerging: The most current forms of methodology "emerging" in any/all church denominations.

Emergent: More theological/philosophical actual structured organization with identified leaders.

Here's a quick quote:
"Through time people started even saying 'Emergent Church' instead of 'Emerging Church' or use both terms as describing the same thing - instead of having Emergents focus more on theology and Emerging Church more on methodology as it started initially. [From Part Two]"

Here's part one, and part two.
