Who are we?
For a long time I’ve been pushing the idea that identity is the most important marker for the Church in the postmodern era. Christians need to remember who they are, and particular tradtions of Christianity need to figure out what makes them particular, what is good, what is bad, what serves Christ and what doesn’t. This is part of the broader postmodern shift–our culture is in a huge flux, individuals are living into the ideal of the “protean man” and finding it wanting… they want to know who they are. Reclaiming our identity as Church is one way to testify to the Gospel to those who are in a place of ambiguity. More later.
