That Postmodernism Stuff is Dead

by Canon Neal Michell

It must be true. I‘ve read in several places. Postmodernism is dead. What do we do now? Don‘t believe it.

When Mark Twain was visiting in London, newspapers in the United States mistakenly published his obituary. In response, Mark Twain sent the following telegram: "The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated." The same is true of postmodernism: the reports of the death of postmodernism are greatly exaggerated. Woe be unto the leader who fails to take into account the effects of postmodernism on our culture and upon those we are trying to reach.

Here is a short overview of Postmodernism. Remember, if we keep doing the things we have always done, we will always get what we always got.
