First Research Project

April 21, 2007

After hearing about Ed Stetzer’s move to LifeWay Research and the collaboration that will take place between IMB, NAMB, & LifeWay, (you can read through others’ thoughts on this here, here, here and here) I have a proposal for Ed for his first research project in this new position:

What are the key characteristics, the positive influences which influence growth, and the negative influences which stunt growth in simple, organic churches of non-indegenous ethnic minorities (i.e. Iranians, Kurds, Bengalis, etc.) in post-modern cultures (i.e. London, Paris, etc.)?

I’m looking forward to your findings…

and so it begins

As I’ve viewed and read others blogs, places like missions misunderstood, love each stone, sbc outpost, and others, I’ve wanted to comment about the things I was reading. Then I found that what I really wanted to do was be free to give my opinion while not hi-jacking someone else’s thread. So, I’ve always chosen not to comment.

But I can’t any longer. I feel like I need to use Cultural Dichotomy to get my thoughts out, to ask questions, and to hopefully move the conversation down the road a little further.

Hi, my name is shorty, and I’m a blogger.
