#MediaLit17 Chronicles 16: “Hacking Church”

#MediaLit17 Chronicles 16: “Hacking Church”


We went to the pub and spoke to a couple of local Methodists who operate intentionally with a “hacking mindset” to approach church life and engage with mission.

This was a great and long conversation, and given the nature of it I’d struggle to adequately represent the whole conversation but I have three highlights:

  1. Use curiousity and experimentation to problem solve and don’t be afraid of using the intuition and perspective of young people
  2. Giving things away for free without strings attached will bless people in ways you might not expect — such as the Christmas Angel initiative: @knittedangels on twitter.
  3. Our priority should always be to facilitate people on their journey to engage with God; even if that means bending, stretching, and (occasionally) breaking “the rules”.

A thought provoking evening, including an energetic dialogue on reaffirmation of baptismal vows by full immersion!

Now onto the final morning of #MediaLit17 tomorrow!
