Metamodernism & It's Impending Challenge
Postmodernism is dead…
- David Guterson, Novelist
It’s a new week at The Story Church Project and I have three exciting things to share!
First, the podcast series “Help! My Local Adventist Church Sucks” is officially over which means you can hear the entire thing here.
Second, if you want to share the entire series with your church leaders but can’t get them to listen to a podcast - no worries! You can download the entire thing as an ebook below! It’s titled, “Heartbeat: How to Redesign Your Local Adventist Church”.
Third, with this series finished, I am turning my focus for the rest of the year toward developing a really good understanding of the emerging secular ideologies that surround us and discover ways in which the local Adventist church can intertact meaningfully with those shifts.

You can also check out my article “Metamodernism and It’s Impending Challenge to Christianity” at The Compass Magazine.
In fact, this weeks podcast will simply be a condensed version of that article.

My hope is that Adventists invest in understanding this emerging vision of reality and find ways to reach this culture today, not 70 years from now when its old news.
