"Take-a-Clue" Mod Church Manifesto: Six More Thoughts

1) The Internet is facilitating organic conversations along a spiritual scale that was simply not possible in the print/broadcast era.

2) By way of a growing digital network, the gathering conversation allows people to speak openly, honestly and in a powerful new way.

3) As a result, participants are getting smarter, more informed, and more organized. Participation in the network changes people fundamentally.

4) Christ-followers who are networked and communicate daily in the gathering conversation have discovered that they get better and far more relevant information than traditional church leaders know, much less provide.

5) There are no secrets. Networked participants in the gathering conversation know far more about cultural engagement and the future of the conventional church than the conventional church knows of itself. And whether the news is good or bad, they tell everyone.

6) What's happening to the people Jesus’ misses the most is also happening to people engaged in the organic church conversation. A metaphysical construct called "The Conventional Church" is the only thing standing between the two.
