You gotta get to about the half way point for Matt Haughey's (founder of MetaFilter) talk to really kick in. But it's good stuff. The longer I'm with a 140 year old church the more I think about this kind of stuff.
Just a few quick thoughts of mine:
- it takes longer but...
- you are able to develop authentic community
- which equates remaining authentic to the context and calling
- you remain a healthy model for those you lead
- you don't have to be a wiz' fundraiser to lead ministry
Yes? No? Do you see other things to consider?
