I’m thinking a bit about either/or statements in books. I’ve become rather fatigued by new claims regarding church trends and what young people want instead. Inorder to start out on a new path it seems necessary to make large either/or statements to make a point, such as “this is what evangelicalism has become” so “here’s what we’re doing instead.” In order to do that it seems necessary to present a single problem and a solution. I wish there was a way to write a book that didn’t involve this same old either/or paradigm. I wish we could just speak without disabusing ourselves of one notion inorder to resurrect or create another that’s supposedly better. We can’t live within notions. We have to live life.
