#MediaLit17 Chronicles 16: “Hacking Church”
We went to the pub and spoke to a couple of local Methodists who operate intentionally with a “hacking mindset” to approach church life and engage with mission.
This was a great and long conversation, and given the nature of it I’d struggle to adequately represent the whole conversation but I have three highlights:
- Use curiousity and experimentation to problem solve and don’t be afraid of using the intuition and perspective of young people
- Giving things away for free without strings attached will bless people in ways you might not expect — such as the Christmas Angel initiative: @knittedangels on twitter.
- Our priority should always be to facilitate people on their journey to engage with God; even if that means bending, stretching, and (occasionally) breaking “the rules”.
A thought provoking evening, including an energetic dialogue on reaffirmation of baptismal vows by full immersion!
Now onto the final morning of #MediaLit17 tomorrow!
