For discussion

February 29, 2012 | Feature | Number 5

1. Do you know people like Sue and Bill in the story? Does your congregation provide Sunday school classes that appeal more to Sue or to Bill? Do you see the world in a modernist or postmodernist way? Are younger people more apt to be postmodernists?

2. Do you agree with Dave Rogalsky’s explanation of the differences between the modern and postmodern view? Are there other ways that postmodernism has changed our lives? Is postmodernism relevant in non-western cultures?

3. Rogalsky says that the church does not need to fear postmodernity. Do you agree? What are the strengths of a postmodern view of the world? How does the church need to change to connect with postmoderns? Are there some things that should not be questioned?

4. What is the role of the Bible or Sunday school in a postmodern church? Does the fact that our society is no longer considered “Christian” influence how we view the church? Will some churches find themselves irrelevant in a postmodern world?
