Back in 2001 Jay Voorhees and I made contact... with Brian McLaren for the first time. We were at very small conference where Len Sweet and McLaren were introducing the idea that in this cultural shift that we find ourselves in- postmoderns are natives and moderns are immigrants in a foreign land. And what is needed now are translators to help communicate back and forth.

I think as new expressions of ministry and the way we rethink church comes more and more prevelant the umc needs to find translators to help navigate.

So.... calling all navigators- brush up on your postmodernism- become familiar with what's going on... but also make sure you do a refresher course on your modernism 101.
