      Hi Carl,
      There are also a number of groups who discuss in the pomo/Christian thoughtspace listed @
      a number of sites listed that focus on this listed @
      and a number of articles you might find helpful @
      Carl, that should give you enough material to keep you exploring for the next 15 years or so!  To understate, there are a number of us who are no longer happy with same 'ol, same 'ol, so welcome to the club!

      Stephen Shields

      Subject: Looking for more information

      I typed in "Liberal Fundamentalist" in Google.com and I got a
      reference to "A New Kind of Christian" which I ordered and read.  I
      was raised a fundamentalist Christian but do not consider myself a
      Christian today.  I'm a member of the Church of Religious Science,
      was studying to be a Practitioner (a licensed spiritual counselor)
      but became disillusioned and dropped out of the training in February
      2001 (after about 2 1/2 years of study). 

      Since then I've been essentially inactive as far as church, am
      involved in other spiritual groups (Alcoholics Anonymous; Al Anon). 
      And I was looking for some kind of enlightened thinking about
      Christianity...which I found in Brian McLaren's book.

      I would like to explore the ideas expressed in "A New Kind of
      Christian" with a study or discussion group; and preferrably in
      person rather than on-line.

      Does anyone know if there are groups or churches pursuing the post-
      modern approach; and if so, where?  Any in San Diego, CA?

      I appreciate any direction.   Thanks---Carl Bergstrom
