  The Emerging Church loves mystery. Who doesn't, right? Well, they really love mystery! They love the excitement of the unknown; the thrill of finding the hidden treasure. They love the great find of the valuable pearl; and the enormous growth of the tiny mustard seed. They love going where no one else is going to find God’s kingdom. The Emerging Church loves to live out the simple mystery of Jesus’ parables.
