Tuesday Reflection, Week 10

December 2, 2006

The conversation during class about the future scenarios regarding Ritzer’s McDonaldization theory was interesting.  The idea that the modern McDonald’s model will completely disappear seems highly unlikely, unless, as someone suggested in class, the Western world would experience some sort of large-scale catastrophic event. With this in mind, I was encouraged to find ways to work with God in redeeming both our modern and postmodern cultural contexts as it seems likely that their currents will continue to flow together and shape our way of life in the years to come. The lecture encouraged me to think less in black and white terms about modernity and postmodernity.
