I’m a little late with this post that is loosely related to the Cultural Discernment presentations on postmodernism our pastor did the last 2 Sunday nights in February. But now that I have a few boxes unpacked and no one is throwing up tonight, I want to post about this conversation with my nearly ten-year-old on the way home from school last Monday afternoon (the day after the last presentation).
We were driving past a now-empty Lutheran church, and Calvin said, “Hey, that’s a post-modern building.”
I said, “Well, I really think it is more modern.”
He replied, “Well, yeah, I guess. But there are some traditional elements.”
No, I am not suggesting that Calvin (or I, for that matter) understand postmodernism. I just thought it was great that he was remembering something from the night before at church despite complaining that it was boring (sorry, Jeff).
