The organic church (another synonym for the emergent/emerging church/converstaion) is reaching out, both to the unchurched members of society and to alternate methods of experiencing church. While many use devices and techniques not found in traditional mainline Christian churchs (emphasis on the 'social gospel' and services geared towards unsaved visitors; elements from other faith traditions such as labyrinths and drum circles; replacing the seeking of the lost with attracting them), these congregations are growing both in size and in number. Whitesel gives an overview of twelve such places, both large and small, giving the reader a first-hand account of what goes on in these religious communities.
