postmodernism, conservative, spirituality, Calvinism
Today I hope to talk about how we can try to have good, constructive, mutually-enriching conversations with conservative Christians. I think two things are required for this that are, perhaps, currently lacking from postmodern theology, but the seeds of which I think are already present there. The first thing that is needed is a common vocabulary that is meaningful and connects well with the traditions of both postmodern and conservative Christians. Second, we need to find places or means by which the two groups can come into contact with each other to engage in conversations: what will draw us together, such that the possibility of organic discussion can arise?
