More Marketing

Isn't it always that way ... the perfect resource shows up the day after you hand in your paper, the exactly appropriate illustration for yesterday's sermon is seen in today's newspaper, and the time you really need something is three days after you threw it out.  Well I just found a great series of posts on commercialism a few days after I posted on it myself.

Check out some of this stuff.  I started with Daryl Dash's blog post on What's Wrong with the Church?* where he referred to Brian Mclaren's Christmas letter where he hocks his books while discussing the evils of consumerism. From there I went to Bill Hinon's blog where he was doing a great series on marketing the church - check out the series ... one, two, two 'a', three, four, and five.

He links to one of his other posts - which is a spoof on Marketing the Church, called Marketing the Family. By the way the comic is also from his series on Marketing the Church.

*Many years ago the "Times" in London invited several eminent authors to write essays on the theme "What's Wrong with the World?" Chesterton's contribution took the form of a letter, and was probably the shortest and most accurate reply they received. What's wrong with the world?

Dear Sirs,

I am.

Sincerely yours,
G. K. Chesterton
