In Dan Kimball’s excellent book “The Emerging Church” we learn that one aspect of the post modern mind is that it accepts contradiction. 1 + 1 does not always have to equal 2, and that’s okay.
I read something the other day that reminded me of this. MTV’s popular live show TRL (Total Request Live” will no longer be entirely live – they’ll tape the show two days a week. The show’s name won’t be changed, says spokeswoman Marnie Black. “We’re not changing anything. The spirit of the show is going to be exactly the same.”
So a live show, titled as such, will no longer be live. Sometimes. And that’s okay.
