    If there’s a lesson to be learned here, it’s that there is a very thin line between genius, almost believable pranks and dangerous, that-junk-might-actually-happen pranks. Unfortunately, I think people were tempted to believe the latter in this case because of the prevailing tides. I, for one, feel like the idea of purely-social small groups is incompatible with the DNA of our church, and it was obviously a joke – but I can’t fault those who were alarmed. The times, they are a-changing.

      I 100% agree with you, Josh. I had one friend who said, “Why CAN’T this work?!?” I reckon’ this proves that next year we’re going to have to fall into the almost believable category.

  3. As a card-carrying “out of town relative” who had been IN town and had talked Summit Church for hours this past weekend, you totally hooked me in. I confess. I’ve never read such a list of real and imagined social media terms in my life. Nor do I expect to again. Boy, I spent most of the day making a list of questions for you, because clearly you had some explaining to do — an inquisition was coming that would have far surpassed the upper room experience when you started getting serious with Merriem. Today I am just relieved and will indeed mark my calendar for next year’s entry.

    hey Danny, you really got me. Sean and I discussed for over an hour pros and cons of this approach! then my last thought was Oh MY, if this works… we just started this new church and home groups and now they’ll want us to change everything. The launch went great and we couldn’t have done it without you !! can’t wait to catch up when the dust settles.

    • Danny says:

      Believe me, Robin: there were more than a few “discussions” going on yesterday. For the record, I’d be pretty high on the list of “con” proponents for an approach like this. 🙂
