In February I was the keynote speaker at the GAiN Academy Europe 2015. This is an international event on media and communication, and I was invited to speak about contemporary culture. Luckily for those not attending, the organisers have put my keynote up on YouTube.



This talk fits nicely into my crusade to get people to forget postmodernism and move with the times, specifically towards understanding metamodernism. Specifically I spoke about utopia, prophecy and the awesome, trying to apply cultural theory to the mission and life of the church.

I have more thoughts on metamodernism, and if you want to hear why postmodernism is dead, check out my speech from GAiN 2014.
