Sacred Anarchies: A Post Church Podcast

Aug 18, 2020

The philosopher Jean Beaudrillard writes of the cultural move toward what he terms ‘the ecstasies of communication’ and a new world framed by digitality, media, and technological experiences. In this world a new terrain of experiences emerge which render previous ideas and theories irrelevant. For Beaudrillard this new reality, this ecstasy is a form of obscenity, meaning it is explicit, and hides nothing. We talk about the challenge of doing theology and thinking about community and faith in this world where the real is obscene.
