Is "messy church" a term that is really being used? It's a new one to me."Messy Church" is a staple of the "Fresh Expressions" Evangelical movement in the Church of England which is being promoted heavily in severa l dioceses of the Anglican Church of Canada and probably in the Episcopal Church as well.Along with Natural Church Development (NCD) they are mistakenly, I think, being used as Church Growth vehicles.Doug CowlingDirector of MusicSt. Philip's Church, EtobicokeToronto

Liturgical trivia knows no boundaries!
Kind of like skufias and gremiales...
