I have just started blogging and am new to all this. Yesterday, I read your book in one sitting and found it stimulating and very helpful (in fact after not before starting my own blog). We are rather behind the blogging times in England and you have opened my eyes to all a blog can be in my ministry. I will be recommending it to others. Thank you for taking the time to share your passion.

Hi Brian.

I was talking to Robert Scobel this week at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco... he said he met you.

Hope all is well. I started a blog. I will be discussing technology and ministryas intentionally as possible. Not on your scale, but I will share my ideas in hopes they are helpful to some other guys.

You interested in doing a podcast?

I just want to say I wholeheartedly agree with your comments!! This life is too short to get grounded down by negtivity in the church. Correction is great if it's done in love and encouragement, but judgement from a seat of superiority or hypocracy is revolting.

The enemy loves it if all he has to do is pit us against one another, and build up our pride. Start encouraging each other, humble yourselves before the Lord and seek Jesus above all else - if you still have time to slag other churches off, I reckon you're missing something.

Brian, you are right on with this post. I have seen a trend where it seems like it's cool to be cynical and put other brothers down because they are not doing it "the right way." And although I am 31 years old and believe in relevancy and engaging culture, I see many in my generation looking down on other churches who are not "cool." The time is too short for us to be criticizing each other. We need to be focusing on being "fishers of men" not "hunters of the brethren".
