connect with the audience / speak truth clearly / apply / allow room for thought / get out of God's way
I think I just need to focus on what God has called me to do and how he has wired me to speak. There you it...my mid week rant as I process communication and what it means to God's people. I just pray at least I can be clear. There is just too much poor communication out there to just go through my "ministry life" adding to the noise.
Oh, by the way, this is all in process, I have the right to disagree with myself at anytime!

Gary Hamel wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal about how "Generation F" - the Facebook generation - will change expectations in the workplace.
Here's his list of 12 characteristics of online life he believes will be applied to the work environment:
- All ideas compete on an equal footing.
- Contribution counts for more than credentials.
- Hierarchies are natural, not prescribed.
- Leaders serve rather than preside.
- Tasks are chosen, not assigned.
- Groups are self-defining and -organizing.
- Resources get attracted, not allocated.
- Power comes from sharing information, not hoarding it.
- Opinions compound and decisions are peer-reviewed.
- Users can veto most policy decisions.
- Intrinsic rewards matter most.
- Hackers are heroes.
I wonder if these will apply to the Church as well?
What do you think? I think Gary is right on track...thoughts???
