Mainly for Ministers

Well, you've heard of postmodernism. And you've probably heard of postliberalism. Well apparently now there is postconservativism.

I really think that we need to come up with lots more of "post-whatever" buzzwords. A couple weeks ago, I had a conversation with a group of ministers and we were discussing the latest Winterfest with Jeff Walling. We were talking about how he presented the Word -- more experiential & skit/entertainment-oriented -- and how there is a move away from "preacher as orator" and more toward "preacher as producer/director." And I named this emerging dynamic "post-homiletic."

I'm considering filing for a copyright...

Changing the subject, take Scot McKnight's Hermeneutics Quiz. I scored a 68, which apparently makes me progressive. I missed being a moderate by 3 points.

When we evolve in our blog posting, will we call it "post-posting"?

Sorry. :-)

Or when E-mail finally conquers snail mail... "Post-Postal"

Or when they create the super mini-computer that they can implant in our brains, thus increasing our brain-power, thus eliminating the need for memory aids, thus eliminating the need for post-it's... "Post-Post-It's"

74 for me.

When I get mad at people and shoot them, and then reform and control my anger, I will be "post-postal."
