Living in a post-ecumenical culture

A while ago, Robb asked me to write a post based around my idea of post-ecumenism, namely: that without people identifying themselves along traditional denominational lines, the focus and indeed very point of the ecumenical movement is nullified leaving the way open for communication and collaboration between Christians but also a void where before there had been structure and form.

Having procrastinated long enough, I find that Laura Everett at the New Media Project has, more or less, written it for me.

Of course, I was going to focus less on the social media elements but they make a good starting point and a valid point upon which to build the argument.

Given that many (a majority of?) people no-longer self-identify as denominational at all, what can be said for the old ways, what would a modern alternative look like, how can we provide for the people who fall between our current self-imposed gaps?
