Today’s Innovations

(From Leadership Journal) “Leonard Sweet noticed how superstar band U2 (and lead singer Bono) changed their act in response to this. ”U2 used to use big screens and technology to create an extravaganza. But they repented. Now Bono’s stage pierces into the middle of the audience, and he draws from a palette of 45 songs by interacting with the crowd. A U2 concert is not about performance any more, but about relationships, about people there helping to shape the event itself.“

”For churches, this means no more pew potatoes. It’s not about a Sunday morning spectacular, but about relationships, creating, and connecting.“
