What is Church 2.0? (Video)

Here is a condensed version of a workshop I offer on the concept of “Church 2.0.” I talk in it about the popularity of things like the “Why I Hate Religion But Love Jesus” video and Mark Driscoll’s Acts 29 Network of churches. But while we can learn something from what these kinds of voices are saying and doing, we can also do this while still offering the world a more liberating theology and a radically inclusive community.

At the end of the video, I talk about an article I wrote called “Can Alcoholics Anonymous Save the Church?” Click the previous link to read it.

Finally, though this may appear that I’m proposing something new for the church, this is really much more reflective of the original Christian movement/church/network than it is anything groundbreakingly original. Just placed in a contemporary context.
