Just finished reading the very excellent book Making Sense of Church: Eavesdropping on Emerging Conversations about God, Community, and Culture by Spencer Burke. He beautifully lays out the differences between the modern church and the postmodern, emerging church and offers new images for ministry in the postmodern context. Reading the contrasts between modernism and postmodernism was quite emotional for me. I am a postmodernist living and working in a very modern context, and trying to patiently live in that tension is quite an undertaking. I am sure many others are experiencing the same dilemma. May the Lord grant us grace and wisdom in our decisions and relationships.
