What is Postmodernity?

"Hi Callid Thanks for this. I appreciate your inclusiveness of the modern in your description of the postmodern. Perhaps the key failures of modernity is, ironically, its inability to view itself "objectively", or as one amongst a…"

"I think its worth stating what we have come to accept as normative: that we are switching the expired notion "Believe-Behave-Belong" to "Belong-Behave-Believe". So if belonging is primary, then the chief mission of the church /…"

nic paton replied to Howard Ngwira's discussion A CHURCH A BUILDING OR THE PEOPLE in the group South(ern) Africa
"Howard, my very short answer is that the root word "ekklesia" means a gathering of citizens, or a gathering of the called out ones. It certainly did not mean a building. It's a great question, and I hope other people get involved.…"

Nic, it may be wonderful to start a mutual communication since we leave nearby, Perhaps, as the Lord grants opportunities we may visit each other. I am a pastor by profession

Hi, Nic, good to see you here. I hope you are doing well. I'm actually in Brazil with the family for one year now, before going back to Canada. I got involved with some organic social-political christian movements here, and got a bit busy with tasks.
Yes, it would be nice to talk some more about life and music. What do you think is the role music can play in existing and future churches in SA?
