Reconstruction

According to research by Tex Samples, the brain's ability to read print is about 100 bits per second. Amazingly, the brain’s ability to take in images is approximately a billion bits per seconds. In other words a picture is worth 10 million words.

Missional messengers and prophets for God need to see themselves less as “wordsmiths” than “imagesmiths.” People today don’t remember sermons outlines; they remember metaphors.

Have you ever heard Tex speak? One of the best I've ever heard. He spoke an an Episcopal Church growth seminar (yea, we believe in that stuff):) and was fantastic.

Good stuff.
