Hearty Heresy

Shift Happens…Even in Religion

I was just looking through some recent blog posts, and I found this from Guy Kawasaki’s excellent blog “How to Change the World.” He’s posted the winners of SlideShare‘s World’s Best Presentation Contest. The winner (as chosen by judges) is a presentation called “Shift Happens,” and I think it reveals the futility of trying to cling too tightly to what I call Brand Xianity (i. e., any form of Christian orthodoxy, humble or otherwise). The world’s changing pretty quickly these days, and to believe in a God who insists on people adhering to a set of beliefs that were the latest thing in–what?–325 C.E. shows an incredible lack of faith. At any rate, as the note says, the presentation “is designed to stand alone, without having to be presented by a person.” So take a look and imagine what kind of Christianity might be relevant for the kind of world it describes.

I loved the slide show. My wife has a new book coming out called “Tribal Church.” It is dealing with the generational shift happening as we speak. It will be coming out on Alban in August. She has started a new book tenatively titled “Interface Dialogue.” She was really excited to see the slides.

Whoa!?! Mrs. Disaster (or is it the Rev. Ms.) is in league with Alban? Fantastic! I know some folks who think the Institute’s the Great Satan, but I also know a few folks who work there and they seem to have their hearts in the most of the right places. I’ll definitely check out “Tribal Church.” Glad ya’ll liked the slides.
