When we talk about the Google age...

...we do talk about a new society and the rules I explore in my book are the rules of that society, built on connections, links, transparency, openness, publicness, listening, trust, wisdom, generosity, efficiency, markets, niches, platforms, networks, speed, and abundance.
Jeff Jarvis - Buzzmachine

I found this article very inspiring this morning... and I was especially drawn to this paragraph. If these are the rules of the Google age then is the church equiped to play by these rules?

I think so... but it really does depend on our outlook. People who have embraced this post-modern, mass collaborative, create AND consume culture are well placed to be effective voices... bright lights in this age.

But then again... networking... openness... listening... trust... wisdom... generosity... these aren't new concepts. They are timeless... ageless... maybe its just that we have forgotten them or demoted them in our pursuit of whatever dream or ambition that we have held sacred?

Thanks to PSFK for the inspiration.
