Don’t nec disagree with ya jon; and I think that yes-it probably is a momentary ‘pain point’ for most introverts in the room-even from many of those I hear the opposite all day long: ‘I checked out x,y,z church down the street and from entry to exit no one genuinely talked 2 me’

Haha! I thought it was a trick when I grabbed it on the iBooks app last week! Like must be a amended copy or something; a PDF sample lol. Me and my men’s growth group are reading it! And it greatly informed our Sunday teaching series “God Conversations” this month and next!

Thom I follow and read and implement all of your stuff at our church in SoCal, but this one makes me crazy every time you post it-I DONT BELIEVE it!!! There’s gotta be a problem with this stat-some outlying factor or Something! Just seems so unfounded-at least down here!

And ?! Cmon don’t be THAT guy! You’ll work yourself into obscurity with postulations like that! What I’m seeing in the next generation of Jesus followers is interest in mystics like the Richard rhors of the world, not doomsday picket-signers, cmon bro stay with it!

It’s not really seriously “troubling” though is it Eric? I think more “irrelevant.” People don’t care. Whether it’s the 40% of Americans who call themselves catholic or even the global faithful by the same name-they just don’t give a rip about papal nuance like this!

Hey larry, thanks for the response-love having convos on here. I’m sure we agree, free press =100% mandatory for a democracy to thrive. Let me just ask you an honest question about the state of our press today: what does it mostly sell, stories bout good stuff or bad stuff??

I’m asking everyone the same question on this thread: in what the media-all bents and biases-sells (drama, fear, polarization) what does it ultimately amount to being: more of an advocate or an enemy of the people??

Stats prove the high clicked&sold stories are based on a narrative of drama, fear, chaos and disorder-you use the same base human emotion that got Trump elected ironically-So if you play the game, does that make you enemy or ally (to a people desparately in need of civility)???

In the clip I saw: it is clear that you’re a solid orator AND understand the theater that is a press briefing. I would ask one simple question to your question: what types of stories/content/product sell at CNN? Like which sell the most? (Most clicks if you will) let me guess...

The Lord wages a war for his peoples’ hearts on the battlefield of their bank accounts... And hearts aflame with kingdom fire will find ever-new ways to embody an economy that looks like God’s, for the glory of our King and the good of our neighbors.

Waiting in prayer is a disciplined refusal to act before God acts.

LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY: your is not in space. Your are not in space. Your is not in space and your certainly isn’t either. ANNNDD, btw, when did I vote to approve this budget?!

One mark of true discipleship is we greet our enemies warmly. We pray for them until we are transformed. It is our love for the hostile and the undeserving that makes us salty, useful and different.
