July 2009

I have finished with my updated abstract and also created a page on my blog so it will be easier to view then having to scroll through my posts. We are coming down to the end of this project as our poster presentations are on monday the 27th. Now I need to work on finishing up my poster and sending it out to get printed! My last project will be to revise my draft and add in all of the missing parts (citations and I think one quote) then it should be a little better.

Ok, so for the most part, my draft is done. It obviously needs to be re-read and I need to finish a few things up, like the citations, but I believe that I don’t intend on changing a whole lot more. Also, with the new focus on my research, my abstract needs to be changed and I intend on getting that done later today, after our lunch meeting. I’m thinking I will create a separate page for the abstract, much like the draft, so that its easier to access. After that, I need to finish up the poster, so everything is certainly coming to a close.

Well a lot has certainly happened with myself and my research in the last week or so. If you haven’t had a chance to recently check out my draft page, the old draft was pretty much scraped and a new one has taken form. My research has taken a new focus, a much more specific and defined focus on the emerging church movement. Now I am focusing on the idea of postmodernism and how significant it is to the emerging church movement’s and its views on Christianity. This new focus should allow for a much better understanding of the movement and how/why it is different from traditional Christianity.

Of course, with this new focus, the abstract will have to be changed to include this, and that will take shape hopefully by the end of the week. I am currently researching postmodernism and how well it can be related to religion, and the emerging church movement in specific.
