I’m reading The World Is Flat by Thomas L. Friedman, the NYT Bestseller about the forces and effects of globalization, and I am simply blown away. Despite the scant attention he pays to the failures of capitalism, his observations on the "flattening" of the world – the transformation from hierarchies to horizontal communities – are spot on. Through technology, growing freedom, expanded opportunities and emerging efficiencies, the world is becoming flat.
More later, but I’m already wondering what a "flat" church looks like . . .
