About-

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
But it's no secret that the Christian church is "broke," and does need fixing.

Despite great effort, things are going badly for us. We've tried trendy and tech-savvy, entrepreneurial and coffee-house gritty. They're not helping. Our problem is deeper than that. Our problem is our instincts--instincts informed by our story. There was a time when the Christian church was a powerfully transformative presence in society. It can be again--but it will require radical rethinking of the story that informs our instincts. And it's time! It's been five hundred years since the Reformation, our last major update. Today is a pivotal moment in history. With our worldview upended by quantum physics, history is demanding we renew the Christian story for our times.

Rethinking Our Story reframes the elements of the Christian narrative for the new era. It explores "quantum" ways of thinking about God, human nature, Jesus, salvation, and the afterlife. The future of the church and the health of our society depend on our willingness to rethink, retell, and live out a better story. We will either update our instincts and contribute to the earth's well-being--or disappear into oblivion.

Bio(s)-

Doug Hammack is an unconventional minister leading a non-traditional church. After years in a megachurch, and deeply disillusioned with American Christianity, he started North Raleigh Community Church to try and find a better way. He and the community have worked hard to rework Christian life and retell the Christian story. It hasn't always been a comfortable process, but today, years later, theirs is a vital, authentic, and quantum spiritual community. For more: www.DougHammack.com.
