Traditionalist vs. Postmodernist

I mentioned in a previous that I had not gotten to an article in the most recent Presbyterian Outlook that looks into the myths of Postmodernism.  Myths of postmodernity and the Emergent Church. This article by a pastor that is in the thick of it is a nice layman approach to exploring the emerging church. It is written by a pastor that works in New Church Development in San Francisco. It brings to light issues/ myths that many traditional ministries see about the emerging church. That we are a flash in the pan or some right wing group. Rather we are leaders that are trying to approach church in a way that takes today’s culture mind. We are more than freaks and geeks, but look to help the church  embrace culture while keeping Jesus at the center.
