Dan Kimball made an excellent point. Historically (i.e. short term last decade or so), emerging and emergent divided.

Emerging means "classical beliefs" expressed in a culturally relevant way.

Emergent was a later split off where even the classic beliefs were up for grabs or radical redefinition.

I don't know if all the participants themselves keep that strict morphology, but that historical reference was enlightening for many.

It would make Kimball and Driscoll "emerging" and MacLaren and Pagitt "emergent".

I think there are hues between and within the two categories but as a broad observation I think it has merit. I'm not that on board with Driscoll or McLaren but I do find pockets of good conversation in the emerging church world.
