Why Did the Emergent Chicken Cross the Road?


Why did the Emergent Chicken Cross the Road?

Why did the Emergent Chicken cross the road? 

  • The Chicken was drawn to the candles and incense on the other side of the road.
  • There was a Hauerwas discussion group at the coffee shop on the other side of the road.
  • The idea to cross the road emerged from the chicken’s generative cohort.
  • It was more “post” on the other side of the road. (i.e, postmodern, post-evangelical, post-colonial, post-institutional, post-post, etc. Pick your favorite “post.”)
  • D. A. Carson showed up on the chicken’s side of the road.
  • Obama was on the other side of the road.
  • To demonstrate that it is more environmentally sustainable to walk across the road than to drive across the road.
  • Bono said crossing the road would save Africa.
  • The chicken was seeking change.  Everything must change!
  • The question is merely a foundationalist modernist attempt to distill complex realities down to a single proposition in accordance with some metanarrative.

I am thinking this might be an emergent laughing at themselves? What do you think? Visit Kruse Kronicle.
