Never passing on a opinion requested, I was drawn over to The Jesus Manifesto, where there is an informal survey being taken about the church in general and the emergent church in particular.
Not sure the protocol is all that clear over for the survey. The hope is that the list will grow as people add to it (not your own blog OR church) and it will more likely show who reads the blog.
In any case, I thought I would add my two cents as there seems to be quite a few good folks missing from the initial list. Also, I qualify my marks of "influential" as neither positive or "negative" simply influential. I put an "x" after folks who were already on the list and my additions are in italics.
If you have a moment, take a moment to post on your site or just drop him a note.
