Swerve Favorites: Think Ahead

[Repost from July 29, 2008]

Successful people are often great at anticipating.

  • If you want to be promoted as an assistant, anticipate how you can better serve your boss.
  • If you want to be successful in business, anticipate what the market will do.
  • If you want to be successful in church, prayerfully anticipate. What new thing is God going to bless?

I try to think ahead by asking questions like these:

  • How are people relating differently? What will relationships and community look like in two years?
  • How are people going to communicate in the future?
  • What future technology/innovation can help spread the gospel?
  • What trends (business, entertainment, philanthropy, etc.) will affect the church?

Think ahead.

I’d love to hear your theories or ideas about what is coming in the church.

    I personally think it would be awesome if there was a website called, “The Church” that was a joint community for all Christian churches. Discussion boards, chat rooms, and etc! A daily blog post by different pastors writing Letters to the family!

    If we are joining together in OnePrayer, I don’t see why we couldn’t join together as The Church online!

    The only question is how to make this site beyond it’s years….
