    I love the concept you presented that people "ingest" information through a variety of ways and methods. It makes me want to think how I can broaden the experience beyond a one hour experience on a Sunday morning.

    Absolutely -- if something is truly meaningful, perhaps it needs to be less about compartmentalization into sacred and secular time and space and more about inclusivity and practicality.

    This is a great question, and one that I wrestle with myself. It's absolutely the case that people consume and participate in education in new ways, and, similarly, that a lot of folks just don't go to church. This is a good thing, though -- it means, among other things, that the people who DO go will participate not out of fear or obligation bur rather out of a desire to be fed and to make a difference.

    Put another way, movie theater ticket prices are high, buying candy requires a credit rating, and there's at least one knucklehead texting throughout the show. At the same time, home theater technology is increasingly good. But people still go to the movies; I think part of the reason for that is that it speaks to something primal within us.

    I think making church interesting has everything to do with making it relevant to everyday life. If folks can get positive tools that help them make the world here-and-now a better, more positive, more practical, more inclusive and empowering place, they'll show up.

    Please get in touch with me and let me know how it goes for you.
