Tim Bednar’s article, “We know more than our pastors” is getting a fresh look from Cindy Bryan and also from Randy McRoberts, who on his blog is also working through a list Bednar created based on the Cluetrain Manifesto about the participatory church. Bednar links it as well, to complete “the circle of link.” If you’ve read The Cluetrain Manifesto: The End of Business As Usual (Full text online), perhaps like me (and apparently like Tim), you kept thinking about the church while reading a business book.

Thanks for the link. I am excited to have found your weblog and am looking forward to reading your contributions to the conversation.
It’s an old article but as relevant as when he wrote it. He has other great stuff on his site, it’s worth a look around :)
thanks for linking to me! great site.
with the help of hubby the geekish one, I posted the comment through firefox instead of aol. Worked like a charm this time. whew. my feelings were beginning to smart a little.
I still think the title is offensive and judgmental, but the content is excellent, and the title does generate interest in reading to see what the fuss is about, so maybe it’s an appropriate one afterall.
How’s that for a run-on sentence, eh?
This is definitely worth a long, thoughtful read, as it was when it first came out.5
Glad to hear the bit about relevancy; I’m working on an ebook right now using the same title but more aimed at helping pastors reconnect to a generation that has been fundementally changed by its use of the Internet.
