David Lose of Luther Seminary has curated a new ebook on church leadership. It’s called Renew 52: 50+ Ideas to Revitalize Your Congregation from Leaders Under 50. I contributed a chapter, as did Lillian Daniel, Nadia Bolz-Weber, Bruce Reyes-Chow, Peter Rollins, and many others. You should grab this book for yourself. Seriously. I mean, it’s free!
Here’s a snippet from my chapter,”LEARN FROM FACEBOOK: IMPLEMENT CONSTANT, INCREMENTAL CHANGE,”
Facebook was in the news this week.
The fact is, I could have written that sentence just about any week over the past several years. Actually, it’s rather shocking that when this company makes a minor adjustment to the user interface, not only do people complain about it on their Facebook walls, but the New York Times prints a front-page story on it.
By Google’s count, there were 3,000 news stories in the week following the transition from the personal profile to the timeline. Some decry this as the end of civilization as we know it, and others revel in the change. When Facebook makes an even minor change, users respond.
